The other day while we were on our way to work, when we got on the bus we saw these posters hung up inside of the bus advertising the Isle of MTV. We weren’t sure what it was at first, since this was the first we’d heard of it but when we brought it up with our co-workers we heard “It’s something you HAVE to go to at least once”. So we were a bit intrigued. Unfortunately we couldn’t go ourselves, ended up having to stay late at work due to a deadline, but a bunch of our friends went and have provided us with some feedback.
It is an absolutely massive, free party hosted once a year by MTV in Malta. They bring in singers from all over and it can host up to 30,000 people. It’s a pretty amazing party from all the sounds of it.
Some videos of the festivities can be found here.
But they had some pretty amazing headliners in Nicole Scherzinger, Enrique Iglesias, Hardwell, Dizzee Rascal and Kiesza. There were a lot of smaller acts as well, and even fireworks during the show. One of our friends even took a water taxi to the event, which in our opinion is a damned cool way to get there!
The buses run late on the night so that people can get home who don’t want to walk and don’t want to take a taxi. So if you’re worried about transport, it won’t be a problem.
