Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), a division of Viacom Inc. and the Malta Tourism Authority today announced one of the world’s hottest new acts Rita Ora and dance collective Rudimental as the first two acts in the line-up to perform at Isle of MTV on the Granaries on June 26. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Following her sizzling performance opening at the MTV EMA in Frankfurt in November, Rita Ora is set to bring her distinctive mash up of R&B and pop with a splash and funk to the Isle of MTV stage, Viacom said.

The 22-year-old British singer-songwriter caught the world’s attention after being picked up by Jay-Z and signed to his label Roc Nation. Her debut album Ora entered the UK album charts at No. 1 last year and gave rise to three No. 1 singles, making Rita Ora the artist with the most No. 1 singles in the UK in 2012.
