When contacted this weekend, Mr Simmons told Bermuda Real: “People always asked me ‘when are you going to bring CultureShock back’. I always answered, one day one day, and now that day is here.
“I’m very excited to bring CultureShock back. I’m expecting a massive crowd to come out to support the artists, which is positive and brings everyone together to enjoy themselves.
“We want to bring people together from all walks of life to this event, because we are One Island,” he added.
