He brings along an ample string of hits and a musical style that’s picture-perfect for this huge event.” Derulo commented: “MTV has always played an important role in my career, and the Isle of MTV Malta is a great continuation of our partnership.”

Isle of MTV Malta will be filmed and edited into a 60-minute special that will broadcast across 20 MTV channels throughout Europe. As part of an extensive integrated marketing campaign, the Isle of MTV Malta Special concert will be supported by marketing initiatives, all of which will drive awareness of the event as well as leverage MTV’s world renowned brand and unique youth insight, to further cement and promote Malta’s position as a holiday destination for young people. Over the nine years that Isle of MTV has been held in Malta, the number of visitors to the island under the age of 24 has increased by 120.9% and now account for 19.9% of all tourists, the MTA said.
