The Chainsmokers have been announced as the headline act to perform at MTV’s annual open-air, summer music festival, Isle Of MTV Malta.
The chart-topping duo will perform the closing set on Tuesday, June 27. The pair announced last week that they will release their debut album this year via Columbia / Disruptor Records.
“The Chainsmokers absolutely dominated 2016 and we couldn’t be more excited to have them join us in Malta for Isle of MTV this year," said Bruce Gillmer, MTV's EVP, music, talent programming and events.
MTV’s partnership with the Malta Tourism Authority was recently renewed for a further four years and will be returning to the island for the 11th consecutive year.
The event will be filmed and edited into a 60-minute special that will broadcast across 20 MTV channels throughout Europe. The show will also be supported across all MTV social media platforms as well as via a bespoke website.
Over the 10 years that Isle of MTV has been held in Malta, the number of visitors to the island under the age of 24 has increased by 120% and now accounts for 20% of all tourists.
