Craig David's TS5 & Bloc Party Will Headline Our Brand New For 2016 Gigs!
The line-ups for our MTV Brand New For 2016 showcases have just been announced and we're beyond excited to tell you that Craig David's TS5 and Bloc Party will headline our two shows on the 26th and 27th January 2016 at The Electric Ballroom in London!
On 26th January Craig David presents TS5 with support from Brand New nominees Anne-Marie and WSTRN. He made Twitter implode after appearing on last weekend's X Factor final with Reggie 'n' Bollie and now the multi-platinum selling artist returns with his TS5 party ahead of a sold-out show at KOKO in March and a residency at Ibiza Rocks next summer.
"MTV has always been about showcasing new talent, so to come and headline their Brand New For 2016 gig is wicked," Craig said. "I've been in the studio with WSTRN and they are amazing with a big future ahead of them, and Anne-Marie's voice is so sick. I'm looking forward to sharing the stage with them!”
And on 27th January Bloc Party take to the stage with Rat Boy and Nimmo in support. Ten years on since releasing their Mercury Prize-nominated album Silent Alarm, the band return ahead of their forthcoming album HYMNS, to close our two-night spectacular.
In the past, our Brand New live showcases have become the stuff of legend featuring performances over the years from the likes of DJ Fresh, Sam Smith, Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Katy B, Years & Years, George Ezra and more, so keep your eye on @MTVUK to find out how you can win your way to this year's showcase.
