MTV dates confirmed


The dates have been confirmed for the MTV concerts in Londonderry at Ebrington Square.

The series of concerts and events will be held over 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 MTV’s flagship UK music TV channels, MTV MUSIC and MTV LIVE HD and subsequently across its portfolio of European music channels in October.

Kerry Taylor of MTV UK said: “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!”

ayor 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.”

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.

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
