What’s On: The MOBO’s – two new acts confirmed
Laura Mvula & So Solid added to the MOBO line-up
With just three weeks left until the MOBO Awards, So Solid Crew and four time MOBO Award nominee, Laura Mvula have been added to the exclusive line-up. A further five top secret acts will be revealed shortly.
To celebrate the new announcements, the internationally renowned awards have joined forces with O2 to offer fans exclusive Priority Tickets to this year’s 18th anniversary show at Glasgow’s brand new SSE Hydro. O2 customers have the chance of getting a limited number of premium seats with unparalleled views of the event from o2priority.co.uk/tickets.
After a star-studded London nominations launch earlier this month, this year’s categories see the likes of Disclosure, Naughty Boy, Rudimental and Wretch 32 in the running for awards, with Laura Mvula and Wiley in the lead with four nominations each. Each category is now open to the public vote which can be placed at www.mobo.com/voting2013.
2013 is not the first year for the So Solid Crew to set the MOBO Awards stage alight. In 2001, the group took home awards for Best Newcomer and Best UK Garage Act. After making plenty of noise at this year’s nominations party, Mega Man from the So Solid Crew knows how to get the fans in the mood: “Get ready for one of So Solid’s biggest stage performances yet! For everybody who witnessed us on the 2001 MOBO Awards we’re going to bring the house down – the So Solid way!!”
The MOBO Awards return to Glasgow for the third time as the result of a very successful partnership between the MOBO Organisation, EventScotland and Glasgow City Marketing Bureau. To mark the arrival of the Awards, there will be events around the city from mid October, giving residents, local businesses and ticket holders the chance to get involved in a range of related activities. It will be the first multi artist, televised event at the brand new SSE Hydro and will help to show Glasgow as a true destination for live music.
