Joining the likes of headliner Example, Rita Ora, DJ Fresh and X Factor winner James Arthur on the Main Stage on Saturday, August 31 is Lowestoft's Ria Ritchie and rapper Amplify Dot.

Rising stars Charlie Brown and Ed Drewett have also been added to the following day's Main Stage line-up, which already includes headliner Jessie J as well as JLS, Wiley and Union J.

Singer-songwriter Ria Ritchie was first spotted by Plan B and has supported the likes of Tinchy Stryder, Example and Wretch32.

Amplify Dot is a British rapper whose career kick-started - at just 14 years old – when she jumped on stage at a Missy Elliot gig and proved her talent.

Charlie Brown's debut single, On My Way, entered the UK Singles Chart at number seven late last month, having made his name as a song writer, and Ed Drewett has previously collaborated and toured with Professor Green.

Sundown Festival spokesman, Dion Clements, said: 'Sundown has always offered the chance to see some of the biggest names in urban, dance and pop music, but we're also keen to showcase new talent we know have promising futures; Ria, A.Dot, Charlie and Ed all fill that criteria with ease and we're pretty sure the audience will be among some of the first music fans to see why.'
