Charli XCX, Clean Bandit To Perform At MTV Brand New 2015 Showcase
They'll be joined by nominees James Bay, Years & Years, Saint Raymond and Sinead Harnett at our gigs in January...
We're thrilled to announce Charli XCX and Clean Bandit will headline our MTV Brand New For 2015 showcases this January alongside special performances from some of the hottest talent set for big things next year.
On January 28, former Brand New act Charli XCX and current shortlist acts James Bay and Sinead Harnett will perform at the Islington Assembly Hall with Clean Bandit and Brand New shortlist acts Years & Years and Saint Raymond performing at the same venue the following day.
Charli XCX returns to the MTV Brand New stage, having being on our shortlist back in 2012. Since then, she has exploded onto the pop scene as a huge artist, performer and song writer. Responsible for hit tracks including Icona Pop's I Love It, Iggy Azalea's Fancy and Boom Clap, she's also set to release her debut album, Sucker, in the UK on January 26.
Charli says: “MTV have been so supportive of me, I was super excited to be a part of MTV Brand New back in 2012 when I was just starting out, so to perform at the January showcase is a really nice feeling for me. It's really important to champion new music and new artists early on, so I think it's great that MTV Brand New can act as a platform for such incredible talent.”
James Bay noted: "This year has been an absolute roller-coaster. I'm so excited to have been chosen as part of the MTV Brand New shortlist for 2015 and I can't wait to perform to everyone at the showcase at the beginning of the year.”
Joining us for night two on January 29, will be Clean Bandit alongside Years & Years and Saint Raymond.
Clean Bandit commented: "We are pumped to be playing at the MTV Brand New showcase and are looking forward to seeing the level of talent in this year’s competition. It should be a wicked night. We are big fans of Years and Years and have heard so much about Saint Raymond, so we are really excited to see them live. Thank you MTV for having us!”
