N.E.R.D. and The Kooks to headline Isle of MTV

The Kooks and Pharrell’s rock band, N.E.R.D. have been announced as headliners for the Isle Of MTV festival, held on the Mediterranean island of Malta.

They join One Republic, Lady GaGa and Enrique Iglesias on 25 June.

Last summer, Akon and Maroon 5 played to 50,000 music fans at Il-Fosos Square in Floriana, just outside Malta’s historic capital city of Valetta.
