Saturday at Sundown Festival was met with beautiful morning sunshine, with everyone desperate for midday to roll on.
John Galea kicked off the Main Stage with some pop to get everyone in the mood for headliner Craig David who was to come on later. Over at the Penguin Platform stage, Dano was the answer to everyone's dance needs playing a variety of nice lively tunes, easing everyone into the weekend.
Two O’Clock saw Franko Fraize take to the Main Stage to play some of his XXX tunes, as well as some others, to round off a solid set. Then it was time for Skepsis for your daily dose of heavy dance music, truly getting people moving and showing that Sundown Festival has something for everyone on the last weekend before it’s time for Back To School.
The man AJ Tracey came on the Main Stage later, playing songs from his latest EP as well as classics like ‘Buster Cannon’ and ‘Leave Me Alone’. AJ also banged out a couple of Skepta tunes to bring out the mosh pits and get the energy crew going. Just before on the same stage, RAYE blessed the festival with her insanely talented voice playing songs such as ‘Shhh’ and ‘I, U, Us’ as fans await her next release.
Kurupt FM took the garage heads to another level after AJ Tracey, playing some classic garage as well as some of their own tunes, adding their unique style of comedy setting them apart from the other acts on the day. At around half six, it became clear that Frank Fraize wasn’t done with Sundown Festival, as he hit the Penguin Platform Stage getting everyone hyped for the night, as darkness fell.
Making your way to The Nest at around 7.30pm, you’d had found the infamous P Money banging out some great jams. Later on, headliner Craig David brought the night to a close playing all manner of hits all the way from ‘7 Days’ and his early albums to ‘16’ from his newest – all of which had the crowd roaring.
All in all, Saturday had some fantastic talent spread through-out the festival… not mentioning the amazing array of food and stalls. To put it as it is: Everyone cannot wait for what Sunday has to bring.
