Sundown Festival is easily a highlight of the year. If you didn’t go, you’ve seriously missed out on a wicked weekend. We sent along Carissa Thorne, aka one of the best young photographers around, to check out the scene and take some snaps for us.
Newcomer BB Diamond opened the stage and let the crowd know what she’s all about.
Imani Williams, our current new fave gal owned the stage at Sundown. Obvs she also killed it during her performance with Sigala too.
We even got to have a little chat with her about the festival and she had some seriously nice words to say. “The performance was amazing! It’s kind of an amazing feeling to hear the crowd sing along to the music I’ve put out so far. I was on stage with Sigala to perform ‘I Don’t Need No Money’ featuring Sigala and Blonde. I’m really excited to be here! I’ve never been to Norwich but it’s cool so far, when you’re travelling you don’t really get to see much but this event is really cool.” Imani even gave us a cheeky shoutout. What a gal!
Speaking of Sigala, Bruce and his band gave a badass performance that just screamed summer.
One of our ‘X Factor’ faves made an appearance and blew everyone away with her sassy ‘Sax’. We can’t wait to hear more music from Fleur East.
Stooshe made a grand return! These girls had been off the radar for quite a while, but they’re back and better than ever. Also, hair goals or what?
These lovely lasses also gave us a sick shoutout, thanks girls! (pssst, you better be following us on Instagram!)

Krept & Konan must have been super warm in those black tracksuits… it’s summer, guys! The almost matching outfits are hella cute though.
Years & Years OMG. Olly is basically our king and we worship the ground he sings on. Y&Y kept it lit af and the crowd loved them so much. There was a group of people stood at the barrier all day with a big ‘Born This Way’ LGBT pride flag which they made just for Olly. CUTE.
Did somebody say JASON DERULOOO? He had the slickest swag we’ve ever seen and was totes worthy of headlining a festival. We’re in desperate need of a dance lesson from him. Hit us up Jason.
Overall, it was a really fun, lively atmosphere and there were people of all ages having a great time. There was a bit of rain but everybody stayed put so they could catch their fave and there was a bunch of other exciting things to do too. Giant bubble blowers, beach balls, everyone was jumping around and dancing to the music they were playing between bands. We’re pretty sure 90% of the festival attendees had some form of glitter on their face as well!
Fancy heading to Sundown Festival next year? Keep your eyes peeled because performers are sometimes announced super early and tickets can be cheaper. This was also Sundown’s biggest year ever, so you know next year is gonna be even more lit.
