Sundown: Lil Kenny

Sundown: Lil Kenny

When you’re at a festival with a line-up such as Sundown Festival - it’s difficult for you to NOT know any artist on the line-up.

But, then came Lil Kenny.

To test the camper’s knowledge of the Sundown line-up, Roman Armstrong created a rapper called Lil Kenny and pretended he was playing on, well actually all of the stages! The Canadian rapper definitely caused a stir at the festival – despite the fact he was fake.

Listen to Roman trying to see if the Sundown campers play along – or if they realise it’s all a fake.

Broadcasted worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Sundown: Sunday Review

Sundown: Sunday Review

All good things must come to an end, but Sundown Festival really went out with a bang on its final day.

Similarly to the day before, an energetic atmosphere was in the air and you could feel it at all of the stages. Ministry Of Sound took over Stage 2, featuring the unmissable Mark Radford, Redlight and even Blonde! Over at Stage 3 you had Goldie, Friction and the one and only Wilkinson, to name but a few. The real excitement, however, was for the incredible lineup on the Main Stage.

From an awesome set from local Norfolk DJ Sigala to the almighty Jason Derulo, the Main Stage was the place to be. The acts were incredible, particularly headliners Years & Years and Jason Derulo, who made great use out of lighting and confetti (you couldn’t help but feel sorry for the crew that had to clear it all up).

Despite some short bursts of rain, the weather was significantly better on Sunday than Saturday, making it a lot easier to enjoy what was on offer.

All in all, Sunday perfectly rounded off Sundown Festival by having a dream line up, nice weather and fans who were ready to party like crazy.

Sundown: Jason Derulo Review

Sundown: Jason Derulo Review

Being the final set to end a buzzing weekend is enough hype as it is, but the insane hype for Jason Derulo was well worth the wait thanks to a stellar performance from a living pop legend and an incredible team.

Opening with a dramatic video montage of performances from all over the world, only building up the suspense, it was somewhat amusing to hear the sound of disappointment when we were instead greeted with a guy named Jae Murphy, turning out to be Jason Derulo’s official DJ. However, despite our annoyance, Jae proved to be a decent hype man and only made Jason’s entrance all the more exciting.

Playing his most famous hits as well as a few new songs, Jason was accompanied by a great band and four wicked dancers. This really made the whole experience a true spectacle, not to mention the excessive use of graphics, smoke and fire effects. The dancers were given the opportunity to show off their talents individually, giving Jason the opportunity to exit the stage. This did seem unnecessary and was slightly disappointing seeing as we wanted to see Jason, but the dancers were really good.

Now, you can’t have a Jason Derulo gig without him removing his top, choosing a lucky girl to be his it girl as he dances seductively to her on stage in front of a very jealous crowd. That is exactly happened and oh boy was she lucky, though she was given a towel to wipe down his sweaty body so beggars can’t be choosers.

Despite not being on the stage as much as we had hoped, Jason Derulo truly earned his place as the Sundown headline act. His catchy songs, talented dance moves and great voice were enough to win us over,…
