“Next year is going to be even better.”

Rudimental, who have worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran, helped to back and promote the concert alongside renowned musical duo, Disclosure.

Others to praise the town for hosting the festival include Matt Robson-Scott, one half of dance duo Gorgon City.

The band, who have shot to fame over the past couple of years, have performed at venues across the globe, had a top ten record and more than 21 million views on their video for their song Ready For Your Love.

But speaking of coming to Shoreham, Matt said the town was a delight.

“It’s crazy. It’s amazing because there are so many of my friends here.

“Seeing Disclosure and Rudimental doing a thing like this and pulling it off time is just incredible.

“The site is amazing, the sun’s out – it’s just beautiful.”

He added: “I have never been here – I’ve been to Brighton a few times but I’ve never been this way up the coast.

“It’s just really beautiful. We’re staying in the town in a little hotel and it’s really nice. It’s just a beautiful site.”
