UK platinum selling artist Raye has been confirmed as the final act for this summer’s Isle of MTV festival at the Granaries in Floriana.

She will join past collaborator Jonas Blue, along with funk band DNCE and The Chainsmokers for the 11th edition of the live music festival, that will be held on Tuesday, 27 June.

Raye, 19, has hit the UK charts in recent months, collaborating with Jonas Blue on the smash hit ‘By Your Side’ and with Jaz Jones on ‘You Don’t Know Me’. The latter song reached No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart, has been certified Platinum in the UK and has garnered over 100 million streams to date.

“I can’t wait to party with you at this year’s Isle of MTV. Looking forward to seeing you all there in Malta on June 27th,” Raye commented.


Moreover, this summer, the hit ‘90s dance party, MTV’s The Grind, will make a return in a special one-off edition. The re-imagined pool party will take place on Sunday 25 June at Café del Mar, featuring record producer Martin Jensen, who will be bringing the party to a close.

The Grind had successfully ran internationally from 1992 to 1997, and had features global artists such as the Spice Girls and The Notorious B.I.G.

“This reimagined return of The Grind gives fans a chance to relive an old favorite in the context of today’s social music culture, while introducing younger MTV fans to a legendary MTV dance party. We’re excited to breathe new life into one of our favorite MTV shows and present The Grind in a fresh way on all of our platforms,” commented Bruce Gillmer, Head of Music and Music Talent, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).
