The Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Elisha McCallion, has extended her congratulations to NI based event and production management company Lumiere Events Ltd. after it scooped the Best Live Music Event award for MTV Crashes at the prestigious Event Industry Awards 2015 held in Dublin this week.

“I am delighted that MTV Crashes has been recognised at the awards as one of the musical highlights of the year,” said the Mayor.

“It was a fantastic legacy event for the city and MTV’s fastest ever selling gig, proving that Derry is a great location for hosting international events.

“I am delighted that following on from the success of last year, Club MTV are returning to the city in partnership with Legacy Promotions to host a gig at Ebrington on August 15,” the Mayor said.

She extended her congratulations to the Lumiere Events team on their success saying she was delighted their work had been acknowledged.
