Get these dates in your diary! Plymouth’s new music event – Ocean City Sounds – will take place on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 July and tickets will go on sale this Friday (2 February) at 9am.
Tens of thousands of music fans are expected to head to Plymouth Hoe this summer to see some of their favourite acts perform at the two-day event, which builds on the success of MTV Crashes Plymouth. Previous years have seen acts including Little Mix, Rudimental, Kaiser Chiefs and Clean Bandit play to huge crowds in the city.
MTV and Plymouth City Council’s continued relationship will see media partner MTV supporting Ocean City Sounds on-air and digitally. In addition, a TV highlights show – ‘MTV Presents Ocean City Sounds’ – will be produced at the event and broadcast on MTV in the UK.
This year, the first evening will see contemporary, chart-topping acts take to the stage, while the second will have a more retro feel, featuring classic acts from the 80s and 90s. Headline artists are due to be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets will be available to buy online at The Ticket Store and via The Ticket Store hotline on 0845 146 1460.
Councillor Glenn Jordan, Cabinet Member for Culture, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing a live music spectacular of this scale back to Plymouth in 2018. The change in format will hopefully appeal to lots of different musical tastes and give everyone the chance to enjoy performances from artists they know and love. Ocean City Sounds is going to be unmissable.”
Tickets for one day cost £25 and two-day passes are available for £45, offering a 10 per discount.
VIP tickets are also up for grabs at £75 for one day or £140 for both days. These include access to an exclusive viewing area plus VIP toilets, private bar, food, a welcome drink and a commemorative lanyard.
All tickets are subject to a £2.50 booking fee.
