mtvU announces full line up for the 2015 mtvU Woodie Awards & Festival


With only four more days to go, mtvU have announced the final line up this morning of perfomers and presenters appearing on the live awards show and festival. The line up of performers for the mtv Woodie Awards include Fall Out Boy, Big Sean, James Bay and of course the upcoming British band Years & Years.


I’m really excited to see Fall Out Boys perform live, I’m hoping they will perform ‘Immortals’, from the Academy Award winning animation ‘Big Hero 6’ as that song is playing on a constant loop on my phone.

James Bay is like someone out of a different time period but still incredibly relevant to today’s music scene with a very unique sound, he’s doing something very different from what everyone else is doing right now. Plus how can anybody compete with that hair?

The line up for the mtvU Festival includes Action Bronson, Rae Sremmurd, MisterWives, Raury, Ty Dolla $ign, Clean Bandit with Jess Glynne and Robert DeLong.

The presenters announed for the mtvU Woodie Awards include Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), Rae Sremmurd, MisterWives, and Hoodie Allen.
