MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds in Plymouth

26 and 27 July

On 26 and 27 July, Plymouth will host two nights of incredible live music in a new open-air music event by the sea, MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds.

Tens of thousands of music fans are expected to head to Plymouth Hoe to see some of their favourite acts perform at the new two-day event, which builds on the success of MTV Crashes Plymouth.

Plymouth Hoe is the natural heart of Plymouth, a luscious green-lawned expanse with breath-taking views across Plymouth Sound, one of the most perfect natural harbours in the world.

Indie titans Bastille will headline Day One of the event (Thursday 26 July), performing a full 90-minute set to the crowd.
The chart-topping, award-winning band have sold more than 11 million singles including ‘Pompeii’, ‘Things We Lost in the Fire’, ‘Flaws’ and ‘Good Grief’.

Also performing is singer-songwriter Ella Eyre, rapper Professor Green and Club MTV favourites, R3WIRE & VARSKI, who will be getting the party started on the night.

Day One will be part of the ‘MTV Presents’ series – which will also include Gibraltar Calling and Varna Beach in Bulgaria. A highlights show ‘MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds’ will be broadcast on MTV in August.

Day Two (Friday 27 July) will bring Ibiza to Plymouth with a huge performance by legendary DJ Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley.
They’ll perform their full, critically-acclaimed ‘Ibiza Classics’ show, which sees classic dance tracks performed in an entirely new way by the 65-piece orchestra and guest vocalists, all with a spectacular light show.
It’s going to be a night filled with nostalgia, transporting concert-goers back to sunny holidays of the 90s.
