Local bands to perform on MTV Crashes stage for third night of live music


Local bands will once again get an opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people on Plymouth Hoe following this year’s two-day MTV Crashes live music event.

Organised by Plymouth City Council, the community music event will take place on Friday 24 July, with entertainment starting from 2pm.

Deputy Council Leader Peter Smith said: “We’re really pleased to be holding another community music event as part of MTV Crashes. This is an amazing opportunity for local bands to experience performing with a full arena set-up and be part of the live music event of the summer. This year we’re teaming up with Radio Plymouth, who are hosting the evening, to run a competition for bands to take part.”

To be in with a chance of performing on the MTV Crashes stage, local singers and bands need to contact Radio Plymouth by Sunday 14 June.

Twenty acts will be shortlisted and residents will be able to vote for their favourites, with the five most popular bands and five most popular acoustic singers going on to perform on the day.

Voting will take place from Friday 19 to Sunday 28 June and the winners will be announced on Tuesday 30 June.
