Sundown Festival 2017: Craig David Review

3rd September 2017 | Music

Towards the end of Saturday it started to get seriously cold, which meant it was perfect timing for Craig David to set foot on Sundown Festival’s Main Stage, as the headliner.

Craig David opened up his Saturday night headline set with his classic ‘Fill Me In’, which did well in warming everyone up.

Craig went through all of his hits including ‘One More Time’, ‘7 Days’ and ‘Ain’t Giving Up’ from his most recent album. Just when you thought he was just about finished, he went on to play ‘When The Bassline Drops’ – his 2016 jam with Big Narstie.

Before finishing his set with his hit ‘16’ (a remix of Justin Beiber’s ‘Where Are You Now’), he played all your favorite classic garage tunes, even doing some of his own renditions of each.

Sundown Festival 2017: XLP

2nd September 2017 | Music

Not just is Sundown Festival an amazing opportunity to see some of your favourite artists, it’s also an opportunity to give back to the community and meet charity representatives.

One of those charities at this year’s festival is XLP - a London-based charity which strives on creating positive futures for young people growing up on deprived inner city estates.

The organisation was set-up in response to a stabbing in a school playground in 1996, when a school headmaster asked XLP founder Patrick Regan to come into the school and work with students to help with behavioural issues.

Now the organisation has programmes across education, arts, mentoring, advocacy and more across 9 different London boroughs.

At Sundown Festival, arts manager Wizdom and project manager Ethan were in the X Mobile – a mobile music studio. Ryan Braier-Lorimer spoke with them about all they do.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Sundown Festival 2017: RAYE Interview

2nd September 2017 | Music

Taking to the Main Stage on Saturday at Sundown Festival is an artist who is the definition of a ‘next big thing’.

The world first heard RAYE’s voice on her chart-topping Jonas Blue collaboration, ‘By Your Side’ in 2016. The artist, who had been releasing music independently until that point, followed up with the groundbreaking ‘I, U, Us’ and the ‘Second’ EP which featured Stormzy collaboration ‘Ambition’.

Over the past year, the London-born singer songwriter has been making an unmistakable name in the music industry. Best friends with the likes of Rita Ora, Louisa Johnson and Charli XCX - she’s making her own crew, and slowly but surely dominating the radio.

Testament to quite how powerful RAYE has become – at one point she had three songs in the UK charts, including the #3 charting ‘You Don’t Know Me’ with Jax Jones as well as her song writing credits on M.O’s ‘Not In Love’ and Charli XCX’s ‘After The Afterparty’.

At the end of the summer of RAYE, we chilled out with the British artist everyone’s speaking about at Sundown Festival.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
