Isle of MTV 2014: Shortlist of Local Acts Revealed

By

In Malta, summer is known to be a hub for the local music scene with vocal exhibitions all throughout the country but the focus is definitely on two events; the Joseph Calleja Concert on the 18th July featuring the vocal stylings of Leona Lewis, Claudio Baglioni and Federica Falzon and the Isle of MTV on the 25th June with acts including; Dizzee Rascal, Kiesza and DJ Hardwell. The audience is different although you would be surprised to find similar individuals at both events.

One major opportunity being offered by the latter show is the #BattleoftheBands, all being local and thus with a chance to perform during the Isle of MTV, which is then broadcast on the station's namesake in the next couple of months. The acts, shortlisted from a large number of submissions are none other than; Rikki Lee (currently number #2 on Malta's Top 10 with Nathan D on 89.7 Bay), Funk Initiative (with lead vocalist Gianluca Bezzina, Malta's former Eurovision Song Contest representative) and Joe Roscoe (who has just been featured on escflashmalta.com and has just started receiving airplay on local radio stations for his third single).

Think of which act you would love to listen to during the Isle of MTV and VOTE here.  It is great to see local talent being appreciated, noting that Ira Losco was part of the first Isle of MTV a couple of years back with Kristina Casolani and Gianluca Bezzina taking to the stage last year. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.
