There’s more exciting news for music fans this year, as MTV are expected to return this autumn for a mini-festival.

The music broadcaster is currently in negotiations with Belfast City Council about bringing MTV Unleashed to the city.

The event, which is also known as MTV Crashes, attracts big-name artists.

In fact, MTV has already announced Crashes will be returning to Coventry on May 27 and 28 and to Plymouth on July 28 and 29.

Whilst negotiations with Belfast are continuing, it is expected that the event will take place in September.
Rudimental, Jess Glynne and Example are among the acts confirmed for the Plymouth gigs.

Full details of the event are expected to be heard at the council’s strategic policy and resources (SPR) meeting next Tuesday.

Hosting the event is expected to put Belfast on the world stage once more, following the mega successful MTV hosted European Music Awards which took place in Belfast in 2011. The show included performances from mega-stars including Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Justin Bieber.

It was reported that some one billion people across the world watched it on TV and it generated £22m for the city.
MTV Crashes also took place in Londonderry in 2014. The broadcaster is also set to return to Derry later this year, for the MTV Club event at Ebrington Barracks.
