Stars all pumped up ahead of Isle of MTV show
The music stars who will be performing at Isle of MTV gave their fans a small teaser of what to expect from tonight's major open-air festival...and praised Malta as a beautiful island while doing so. 

At a press conference at the Radisson Hotel, the Chainsmokers said that Malta "feels like summer...feels like where we should be".

"We've never been here before and we only just arrived from Belfast this morning, but we've looked at Google images of Malta and its beautiful," one of the duo quipped.

They described their hits, such as Closer, as songs that focus on "small moments in relationships that are quite visceral and have resonated very well with people".

Pop band DNCE, which includes former Jonas Brother Joe Jonas, said that their fans should expect "funny and crazy" things from them tonight.

"I get pure excitement whenever we play our music in front of crowds," Joe Jonas said. "It's been awesome here so far, and we're going to walk around afterwards."

DJ Jonas Blue told fans to expect acoustic and energetic music from tonight, and confidently said that his dream is to create "timeless dance songs that people will still be listening to several years in the future".

Not a stranger to Malta, Jonas Blue said that he has DJed a couple of times at Cafe del Mar before but hasn't had any time to explore the island yet. 

Raye, a 19-year-old singer who burst onto the music scene last year when she collaborated with Jonas Blue on 'By Your Side', confirmed that she and Blue will team up to sing the hit song tonight but that she will also be singing some of her newer songs and that fans should expect "a lot of jumping around".

"Malta's so beautiful...I went on a jet ski for the first time in my life this morning," she said. "This is such a big deal for me, and I have so much love and respect for Isle of MTV for giving me this experience. Playing in a sunny country is so different from what I'm used to."
