Sundown: Saturday Review
The first day of Sundown opened with a BANG, and a Dizzee Rascal

Sundown 2016 has officially begun. The entire area was buzzing with energy, with food stands and rides galore catering for an impressive 40,000 pumped and slightly dizzy guests. Not to mention the wicked selection of music they had on offer.
With three stages to choose from, there was a hell of a lot of music to dance to: from pop to grime at the main stage and house music, giving a club-like atmosphere, at the others. The lineups were very impressive also, featuring mainly homegrown talent from the likes of: M.O, Kiko Bun, Becky Hill, Dizzee Rascal, Jess Glynne and Chase & Status. These are seriously some of the best British artists around at the moment.
One very aggravating part of the day was the weather. A more appropriate name for the festival would have been Pouring-it-down and it was easy to feel sorry for those who forgot to bring their waterproofs (well, you snooze you lose). However, the fans put the rain past them and still managed to have a great time.
Just like Friday night, an after party took place for everyone who still wanted to let down their hair and the turnout was huge.
It's fair to say that Saturday lived up to the expectations, and Sunday has some pretty big metaphorical shoes to fill. But considering the line up on Sunday, this shouldn't be too difficult.
