Plymouth seeks festival partner

9 November 2017

PLYMOUTH CITY Council (PCC) is on the lookout for a new festival partner after its contract with MTV to stage MTV Crashes Plymouth (cap. 30,000) came to an end.

The two-day event has taken place on Plymouth Hoe for the last four years and this year featured Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Busted and Sigma.

“We have had Martin Garrix, Little Mix, Kaiser Chiefs, Tinie Tempah, Foxes and Example performing in recent years, so the site performs well,” says PCC marketing and events manager Jamie Yabsley.

The council is open to exploring a range of contractual and operational models, including providing management staff and operations. It is hoped any new event will be ready for next year.
