MTV Club Night: Mayor joins 10,000 revellers for Derry gig
Around 10,000 revellers crammed into Londonderry’s Ebrington Square on Saturday to dance the night away.
The MTV Club Night was the hottest ticket in town and concert-goers included the city’s mayor Elisha McCallion.
She said the event was a “fantastic occasion” not only for the city but for the whole north west region.
Ms McCallion said the involvement of Legacy Promotions, a local events company, was a sign of the “growing confidence” of the business sector in Derry.
She added: “I would like to commend the company for taking the initiative to enter this partnership with Club MTV to bring about a fantastic event for our youth.”
She said it was “an absolute pleasure” to be present and added: “I think this just shows how good Derry is at doing this sort of thing.
“I hope this is the start of something regular.”
Among the acts were Galantis from Sweden and Australian duo NERVO who were on early. NERVO were then given a special police escort to City of Derry airport where their private jet was waiting to take them to Paris for another concert.
Other acts on the Derry line-up included Incognito/Aztek, Zenemy djz, David Zowie, Philip George and R3wire & Varski.
The night sky was lit up with a light show as the music blasted across the Foyle. R3wire wrote on Facebook there were “epic scenes”, and, thanking fans for attending, added: “U guys were amazing!”
