ACC X SUNDOWN

Festival goers spent the weekend at Norfolk Showground for Sundown Festival and ACC certainly did not miss out either! 

Sundown has grown from strength to strength over the last few years and for 2019, they pulled out all the stops. Friday night campers were treated to their own opening party, which saw sets from Sigala and Macky Gee and for those night birds, there was a silent disco to carry on once the music had finished. 

With the sun shining, the main stage was opened on Saturday by singer-songwriter, Freddie Long followed by chart-toppers, NOT3S, Mable, Jax Jones and more. Anne Marie took the headline spot and the crowd was electric for her hit singles including, 2002, Ciao Adios and Perfect to Me.

And it didn’t stop there! Sunday brought even more fan favourites to the main stage, including: Example, Ella Eyre and Jonas Blue. There was also a last minute stand in for Stefflon Don from Becky Hill. The Sunrise in the East singer was due to finish her festival season at Leeds Festival the weekend before so surprises all round!

BRIT award-winning, Tinie Tempah, closed the main stage giving fans all the throwback favourites! 

Over the weekend, not all of the focus was on the main stage. Some of the industry’s best known DJs took over Sundowns three dance stages; The Nest, Mystree and The Castle. Names included Danny Howard, Artwork, MK and Low Steppa. 

Music fans could re-energise with the huge range of food stalls across the site, including a ginormous, pop-up chicken nugget tent from McDonalds! 

Over in the guest area, VIPs could unwind at the ACC stage which we ran in partnership with the festival. ACC’s Norwich and Manchester students took to the stage with a mix of acoustic, rap and DJ performances and our sound engineer students and stage crew worked through the weekend to make sure guests weren’t left a second without music. 

Sundown is ACC’s final festival of the summer and what a way to wrap it up! Make sure you keep an eye on our social media channels for highlights and an interview with Saturday main stage act, Kelvin Jones.
