Thousands are expected to turn out for the event in the city's Ebrington Square on 19 September.

MTV announced the first acts on Tuesday.

"I am just excited to get out on that stage," Professor Green told the MTV Crashes website.

"I love performing - that's what it's all about for me, so I'm looking forward to sharing my tracks with this Derry audience and seeing their reaction at MTV Crashes!"

MNEK added: "I am looking forward to getting out there and performing alongside Professor Green at MTV Crashes Derry.

"I think it's going to be a good one and hopefully we will well and truly crash it!"

According to the organisers, 10,000 tickets for the event sold out in just 40 seconds.
