Plymouth has been chosen to host a popular music festival for the next three years.
The success of this summer's 'MTV Crashes' event means organisers are also planning to extend it to two nights instead of one.
More than 20,000 people turned out for July's gig on the Hoe - and millions of people saw it across the music channel's global network.
It featured the Kaiser Chiefs among the headliners.
Plymouth City Council has agreed to underwrite MTV Crashes as it has major economic benefits for the city.
Ticket details and prices will be announced in the New Year.
20,000 people are expecting to pack Plymouth Hoe for tonight's MTV Crashes concert, which will be broadcast across the world. Headliners include Kaiser Chiefs, the 1975 and Kiesza. Kai
Cllr Peter Smith, the Deputy Leader of Plymouth Council is suggesting that the Hoe will be buzzing but there is space in the harbour, if people want to come by boat.
Plymouth is preparing for its biggest event of the year tonight - as MTV Crashes hits the Hoe.
A crowd of around 20,000 people is expected for the event which has the Kaiser Chiefs headlining.
Motorists are being advised to stay clear of the area - there are widespread road closures around the Hoe.
