Isle of MTV

Black Eyed Peas (side)MTV know how to put on a good party. I think we can all agree on that. So when they announce that they’re organising a huge party in Malta for 50,000 people and it’s free, you know it’s going to be good before you even hear who’s playing or any of the important details.

This year’s Isle of MTV is hoping to capitalise on the success of the two previous years’ events, which saw the likes of Akon, Enrique Iglesias, Maroon 5 and The Kooks all play the event. For 2009, The Black Eyed Peas (pictured right), Lady Gaga, Metro Station and Esmée Denters all play the gig this year on Wednesday July 8th, just over two weeks time.

The four hour live event takes place in Malta’s Il-Fosos Square and will be turned into a 90 minute TV special, which is possible thanks to the support of Air Malta, Grand Hotel Excelsior and the tourist board, Visit Malta. They’ve all made it possible collectively for locals to experience world-class bands that normally they wouldn’t have a chance to see, something that I’m quite keen on – Radio 1 have done it with their Big Weekends, bringing big bands to towns in the UK that don’t normally have great music scenes, and MTV are doing it for Malta.

So, if you’re looking for a last minute summer break with some great music, or just something to catch on MTV later in the summer,  be sure to check out Malta and Isle of MTV.
