Rob da Bank says “Wow Southampton. Didn’t think you would be able to top 2015 but I was very wrong! The sunshine, the crowd, the music, the food, the world’s biggest bouncy castle, Craig David’s homecoming performance – Wow! Thanks for one of the best weekends so far this year. Can’t wait to be back”
