Tens of thousands of people attended the seventh edition of the Isle of MTV Malta as Rita Ora, Rudimental, Jessie J and DJ Afro Jack performed throughout the night. Local artists such as Gianluca Bezzina, Kristina Casolani and DJ Armani were also on stage to show what Malta has to offer.
Everything went smoothly throughout the entire show, except for when Jessie J stopped singing for a few minutes when a fight broke out in the crowd just a few metres in front of her. She quickly explained that “Music is about love, not about fighting” and continued her performance.
A record crowd attended this year, around 50,000 people. Revellers continued to party right until the end of the show around midnight. There were streams of people and a traffic jam leading from pieta to Floriana mainly comprising taxis, vans, and coaches, who made their way to ferry many of those who used public transport and taxi facilities to get back. However, many people used their own transport too, and parking bays up to Guardamangia were all taken, with many opting to walk to the granaries Floriana.
