Rising pop star Raye has joined the line up for Isle of MTV Malta on June 27
Raye will open Isle of MTV Malta's main show.
The 19-year-old rising pop beauty will perform at Il Fosos Square on June 27, joining the likes of past collaborator, Jonas Blue, DNCE and The Chainsmokers for what will be the 11th year of Europe's largest, free live music event.
Of the gig, she said: "I can't wait to party with you at this year's Isle of MTV! Looking forward to seeing you all there in Malta on June 27th."
Bruce Gillmer, Head of Music and Music Talent, Viacom Global Entertainment Group, said: "We couldn't be more excited to have DNCE and Jonas Blue join us in Malta this summer. Isle Of MTV 2017 is pacing to be our best ever!"
Last year saw the likes of Jess Glynne and Steve Aoki perform.
The 'Delirious' hitmaker - who recently collaborated with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson on his debut solo single 'Just Hold On' - pelted the crowd with the treats when he performed 'Cakeface' to an excited audience at Isle of MTV's 10th birthday celebrations in Malta last June, where he revealed he has certain criteria about which tasty desserts he needs.
At the time, he told BANG Showbiz: "It's a six page rider on just the cakes. It's really important. There's stuff on the flavour because it's gonna be smashed in your face so you don't want it to be a British cake because that's absolutely the wrong type of cake. The British cakes are like bricks.
"First of all they need to be really spongy and soft and gooey and colourful. It's not quite as long as my rider. My rider is 13 pages."
This year Isle of MTV Malta forms part of a week-long series of live music events and club nights. For more information about tickets and travel packages visit www.isleofmtv.com.
