In London, the Wild Life festival, which was curated by chart-topping bands Rudimental and Disclosure on June 6 and 7, took home the award for their sold out event at Shoreham Airport.

A spokesman for SJM Concerts said: “Organisers would like to thank the people of Shoreham, Lancing and the airport who, as well as deserving the Best New Festival Award, also merit a special mention and a lot of love after recent events. We dedicate this award to you.”

The festival saw 35,000 thousand music fans enjoy what was billed as the most exciting music event ever to happen in Sussex and for many the best line up.

Following the highly successful event this summer WILD LIFE will return to Shoreham Airport on June 11 and 12 2016.
