Plymouth's biggest music event of the year MTV Crashes kicks off tonight on the Hoe.
Tinie Tempah and Little Mix have both been confirmed for the first night of the two-day music festival - the second night is a Club MTV special.
35,000 people are expected on the Hoe for the sold-out event, which will be broadcast around the world.
It's Plymouth's biggest music event of the year, and the first night line-up for this summer’s MTV Crashes Plymouth is firming up.
Tinie Tempah and Jess Glynne have both been confirmed for the first night of the two-day music festival, which last year saw around 20,000 people descend on the Hoe.
Tinie Tempah will be headlining on 22 July. He had a number one with his debut album Disc-Overy and has since won BRIT Awards for Best British Breakthrough Act and Best British Single, as well as getting two top 10 singles in the UK charts.
He’ll be joined by pop star Jess Glynne, who's had three number ones. ‘Hold My Hand’ held the top spot for three weeks. Her debut solo single reached the top 10 and her first album is expected later this year.
The event will be broadcast live around the world.
More names for both days will be announced soon.
Tickets for this summer’s MTV Crashes Plymouth have sold out.
Pre-sale tickets for the music festival went on sale at 6pm last night and sold out in around two hours. Those allocated for general sale this morning were snapped up in just 15 minutes.
See Tickets apologised to customers this morning as music fans rushing to get their hands on the second batch of tickets caused its site to crash.
Plymouth City Council is now in discussions with MTV about the possibility of increasing capacity at the event to give more Plymouth residents the chance to experience the festival.
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.
