Multi-platinum selling, funk-pop band DNCE and chart-topping DJ and producer Jonas Blue will be joining headliners Chainsmokers on stage at this summer’s Isle of MTV festival at the Granaries, Floriana.

After making their global debut in 2015 with their song ‘Cake By The Ocean’, DNCE went on to take home the award for ‘Best PUSH Artist’ at the 2016 MTV EMAs and ‘Best New Artist’ at last year’s MTV VMAs. Their self-titled debut album DNCE was released in last November.

Jonas Blue took the music industry by storm last year with his debut single, ‘Fast Car,’ featuring Dakota, selling over 6 million records worldwide. This followed with equally great international success with his second and third dance hits, ‘Perfect Strangers’, featuring JP Cooper, and ‘By Your Side,’ featuring RAYE.

The 11th edition of the Isle of MTV festival will be held on Tuesday 27 June and will be filmed and edited into a 60-minute special that will broadcast across 20 MTV channels throughout Europe.
