X Factor's James Arthur has confirmed his first major outdoor festival slot since winning the ITV contest at the Sundown Festival in Norfolk.

The TV talent show star will perform at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September, organisers said.

Last week fellow chart topper Rita Ora was added to the line-up, alongside headliners Jessie J and Example.

JLS and DJ Fresh will also be performing at this summer's festival.

Sundown Festival spokesman Dion Clements said: "James bridges a gap between what is arguably the pop-oriented sound of traditional X Factor winners and an edgier urban sound.

"He will fit right in at Sundown, where the audience appreciates a wider variety of current music, and we're very pleased he's coming to perform the main stage with us."
