We're heading to Ebrington Square this September for our second 'Crashes' of the year...
MTV is thrilled to announce that we're going to 'crash' Derry's Ebrington Square this September - our second 'MTV Crashes...' of 2014!
MTV Crashes Derry - Londonderry will be staged in collaboration with Derry City Council in front of 10,000 people. Thousands of tickets for the event, which will feature a selection of stand-out performances, will be released on August 9.
Across the weekend of September 19-21, Ebrington Square will also play host to a number of other related events which will include Club MTV DJs performing live sets and a local concert event run and promoted by Derry City Council.
Coverage of MTV Crashes Derry - Londonderry will be broadcast across our flagship music channels, MTV Music and MTV Live HD.
MTV Crashes Derry – Londonderry will follow the MTV Crashes Plymouth event which took place last week (July 15) in front of a crowd of 20,000. Previous Crashes destinations also include Glasgow, Belfast and Manchester.
Kerry Taylor, Senior Vice President, General Manager, MTV UK comments: “With one Crashes event already under our belt, we are delighted to be announcing details of our second. Londonderry is a fantastic city - steeped in history and named as 2013’s City of Culture, so we can’t wait to crash it! We look forward to working with local partners on the ground to stage a live music event that Derry won’t forget!”
Mayor Cllr Brenda Stevenson said confirmation of the partnership with MTV for a live music event in the city was a huge coup for the city and a key element of the Council’s legacy promise for Music City 2014. She commented: “It promises to be a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our city to a national and international audience. With a full weekend of activity, there will be music to suit all age groups. Today we are announcing details of the MTV music event which will be attractive to our young people in the city and wider region to experience one of the biggest music parties of the year.”
As part of the Crashes event in Derry, MTV will also be hosting free music academy workshops offering unique insights into careers in the media.
