The Sundown Festival, held every year near Norwich, has announced a new act in its line-up.
Becky Hill, a competitor in the very first series of The Voice in 2012, will be performing at the festival, following the release of her co-written song Gecko (Overdrive) with MNEK. Becky has also scored other Top 40 hits, providing vocals for tracks with Wilkinson and Rudimental, as well as performing with Ella Eyre on her tour. She will be appearing on Sunday 31st August, the third day of the festival.
This year, The Sundown Festival also offered undiscovered artists an opportunity to perform via social media. #IAmSundown2014 asked artists to send in 15 second videos on Instagram, which were then judged by public votes to decide on the two winners. The first winner Oliver Daldry will be opening the main stage on Saturday 30th and other winning contestant Reeva will open on Sunday 31st.
Other amazing acts who will be performing at the festival include: Tinie Tempah, Chase & Status, Katy B and Foxes on Saturday 30th and Ellie Goulding, Neon Jungle, Clean Bandit and John Newman on the Sunday 31st.
