With just two weeks to go until it all kicks off in Norwich (September 2), Sundown Festival is set for its biggest year yet in the twilight of the British festival calendar. Expanding to three stages, the festival will play host to some of the best UK urban talent and, with everything from grime to D&B covered in full, it's set to be a fitting way to see out the festival season in Norfolk Park. Tickets are selling out fast, so get yours now.
Here are 5 acts that you don't want to miss:
1. Dizzee Rascal
An absolute legend in the scene, no further introduction is necessary. Back on the festival circuit after a brief absence, Dizzee has a back catalogue that will not only appeal to the more pop-orientated punter, but also the seasoned grime head. Here's hoping he plays some classic Boy In Da Corner numbers.
Undoubtedly one of the best performers on the festival circuit this summer, Kano has proceeded to smash every venue and festival he's graced, whipping any crowd up and down the UK into complete frenzy. His album, Made In The Manor, recently got nominated for the mercury award—a brilliant achievement for a deserving MC—and hearing him play it live has been many people's gig highlight of the year in 2016.
Catch Metalheadz top boy and D&B pioneer Goldie lenging it down whilst he's in red-hot festival form. Goldie has been a breath of fresh air whilst touring this year, with classic-laden sets that have lit up many-a-dancefloor this summer. Iconic and unmissable D&B goodness.
4. My Nu Leng
My Nu Leng have been building up a strong portfolio of staunch, bass-heavy tech-house tracks in recent years, and the Brighton duo's tour with Rinse FM stalwart Oneman this year have set off many dancefloors into bedlam. Definitely worth checking out if you want to hear the best new tracks in UK bass blended expertly.
5. Flava D
Butterz label queen Flava D is known for laying down some of the hardest grime sets in the scene. From her epic FabricLive album to her stern sets on Rinse and rowdy remix of "Rhythm & Gash", Flava D never fails to shell it down. She's as much an act to see for the heads as she is for first-timers. Get into it!
