MTV to ‘Crash’ Derry~Londonderry's Ebrington Square
24 July 2014
MTV has announced plans to ‘crash’ Derry~Londonderry's Ebrington Square and stage this year’s second MTV Crashes live music event in late September.
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 9 August.
Across the weekend of 19 - 21 September, 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 MTV’s flagship UK music TV channels, MTV MUSIC and MTV LIVE HD and subsequently across its network of European music channels in October.
MTV Crashes Derry – Londonderry will follow the MTV Crashes Plymouth event which took place last week (15 July) in front of a crowd of 20,000. Previous Crashes destinations also include Glasgow, Belfast and Manchester.
MTV Crashes will be a key part of a wider weekend of activity in the city including Culturetech, Culture Night, free music academy workshops, hosted by MTV, offering unique insights into careers in the media and much more. Further information is available via www.visitderry.com.
Confirmation of the MTV Crashes Derry - Londonderry event date, performances and workshop details will follow shortly. Tickets for the weekend will be available online and via local box offices.
A dedicated MTV Crashes Derry-Londonderry microsite will be available at www.mtv.co.uk/derry.
MTV UK audiences will be able to get closer to the MTV Crashes Derry - Londonderry action using new social media network Tunepics. MTV successfully launched Tunepics at Plymouth Crashes earlier this month, sharing exclusive content with its users.
