MTV Presents: Ocean City Sounds taking over Plymouth Hoe this summer 

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

Indie titans Bastille will headline Day One on 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 and rapper Professor Green and Club MTV favourites, R3WIRE & VARSKI will be getting the party started on the night.

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 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 you back to sunny holidays of the 90s.
