SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan has welcomed today’s ticket details for the ‘MTV Crashes’ event in Derry in September – which will be announced in Ebrington Square at 3pm.

Mr Durkan, who held discussions with MTV in 2012 about trying to find a suitable location for them to come to Derry (which continued right through City of Culture 2013), said: “I’m delighted that so many people will have the chance to see stars of international calibre come to them to perform in the special setting of Ebrington – which is a stage in its own right overlooking an impressive cityscape.

“Once again, there will be an incredible atmosphere in Derry.

“I’m also delighted for all of the local acts who will have the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a global audience.

“This is another great opportunity for Derry to star in the eyes and ears of millions, and is an excellent addition to Music City 2014.”
