Chiddy Bang coming down under for MTV Winter

MTV Australia and New Zealand are excited to announce Chiddy Bang will be heading down under to perform exclusively at this year’s annual MTV Winter event.

Joining them will be long time MTV friend, Ruby Rose and DJ Alison Wonderland, who will kick off festivities at the event in Melbourne for the second year running.

This comes hot off the heels of the announcement that Jay from MTV’s hit reality series, Geordie Shore will, in a Geordie first, head to New Zealand before crossing the ditch to tash on at MTV’s premier winter event.

In an Australian exclusive, Chiddy Bang will perform at MTV Winter busting out hit songs Adults, which samples MGMT’s KIDS, Ray Charles and their current smash Mind Your Manners featuring Icona Pop and Travie McCoy.

“We spend a lot of time all over the world, but Australia is by far one of my favorite places. I’ll look for any excuse to rage with its fine people – so what better way than at a crazy MTV party!??”, Chiddy said.

Chiddy Bang, an alternative hip hop duo from Philadelphia, are renowned for creating a sound based on the fusion of hip hop and alternative samples from artists such as Radiohead, Passion Pit, Sufjan Stevens and Yelle. After a series of critically acclaimed mixtapes, the guys dropped their debut album BREAKFAST earlier this year, debuting in the top 5 Billboard charts. Chiddy Bang will continue their non-stop touring schedule all summer and make a return trip to Australia as part of the Parklife festival later this year.

MTV also welcomes back Ruby Rose who will this time be involved from a different angle; as one of the performing artists! Ruby was MTV Australia’s ‘diamond in the rough’ and has since gone from strength to strength to become one of Australia’s most well known DJ’s, fashion designers, TV presenters, celebrities and shortly, singers. Ruby is currently writing tracks for her new album with the first single confirmed for release this year.

Joining Ruby will be DJ superstar Alison Wonderland, who’s been playing since 2008 and rose to prominence in EMI’s She Can DJ project. Since then Alison Wonderland has played high profile gigs including Pacha, Café Mambo and Ibiza Rocks in Ibiza, the ARIAs, Stereosonic, Field Day, the EMI Grammys after party in LA and the EMI Brit Awards after party in London. In May this year, Alison released her very first compilation album, Welcome To Wonderland.

Adding a touch of Newcastle to the lineup and off the back of filming Geordie Shore Season 3 in Cancun, Jay will be heading to New Zealand for a whirlwind press tour before jetting to Australia to celebrate Season 3 of the hit new show with the MTV crew in Melbourne at MTV’s annual Winter event.

MTV Winter is a celebration of MTV’s winter programming with hit shows including Geordie Shore 3, MTV Style Me, Local Produce: Van She, 16 & Pregnant Season 4 and Savage U. MTV’s annual Winter event will celebrate the programming lineup with a party like no other in Melbourne, for the second year running. Stay tuned for further details and talent announcements.
