London – 27 February 2018; MTV International, in partnership with the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) has today announced that brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will headline at this year’s ISLE OF MTV MALTA. The biggest free live music show of the European summer, now in its 12th year, will return to Il-Fosos Square on Wednesday 27th June 2018.

In just a few short years since winning the 2014 MTV EMA for ‘Best Belgian Act’, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have grown from European DJ stars to global electronic music heavyweights. They became the first ever duo to rank No.1 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll in 2015 and have remained in the top 3 spots for the last four years. Their combination of pounding DJ sets and energetic MC-ing has taken them to some of the world’s most iconic venues and festivals. The 80,000 tickets for their four ‘Bringing the Madness’ Belgium arena shows sold out in just 60 minutes, and the duo headlined the biggest solo DJ show in Germany to date – to a crowd of 45,000.

We've heard about The Isle of MTV event for a few years now and are so pumped to finally play it.” - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike

In addition to the main show, Isle of MTV Malta Music Week will return for a second year – bringing not-to-be-missed club nights to the island from 27th June to 1st July 2018.

Last year, the week-long festival brought international DJs such as Don Diablo and Martin Jensen, to tens-of-thousands of music fans across the island. Additionally, for the first time since 1997, MTV brought back the iconic dance show The Grind to Maltese hot spot, Café Del Mar. Together with the Isle of MTV main show, The Grind amassed 2.4 million streams on Facebook.

More talent and the full Isle of MTV Music Week line-up will be announced in the coming months.
