The Boys Of Sundown

7 September 2013

Summer is almost over, and what better way to mark the end of the summer than going to a music festival. So when Next Models invited us to come along to the Sundown Music Festival, we were quick to take them up on the offer.

Following their scouting team around, we learned a thing or two about model scouting. Cecilie Harris captured all the image goodness, and headed into the arena crowds and camping sites to photograph the essence of the boys at the festival.

The Sundown Festival took place at the Norfolk Showground Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September, 2013. Constantly entertained by awesome music from the stage, we happily walked around the grounds to the sounds of acts like Rita Ora, James Arthur, Union J, JLS, Amelia Lilly and Jessie J. The constant good atmosphere, helped by the lovely weather, made it a great experience and the boys we met at the festival were a friendly bunch.

Sundown had all the ingredients for a successful festival; good music, great performances, sunny weather, a great crowd, a great atmosphere and blue sky. We returned home with lots of stories to share and fond memories. Thanks again to Next Models for inviting us and taking such great care of us.
