CHART- TOP­PING Si­gala and X- Fac­tor star Fleur East are the lat­est acts con­firmed for MTV Crashes Coven­try.

They will join Chase & Sta­tus, Kaiser Chiefs and Tom Odell on the first of the two- day Ri­coh Arena msuic event this May.

UK pro­ducer Si­gala has al­ready had a num­ber one sin­gle with ‘ Easy Love’ fol­lowed by cur­rent num­ber three sin­gle ‘ Sweet Lovin’.

Si­gala has even been on the short­list for the cov­eted MTV Brand New 2016 award and will bring his pop­u­lar beats to Coven­try.

He said: “This is wicked, I can’t wait to crash Coven­try! There is al­ready a great line up, so I’m re­ally ex­cited to get up there - it’s go­ing to be a mad one!”

Fleur East is an­other act who has burst onto the pop scene af­ter ap­pear­ing on X- Fac­tor in 2014.

She sprang to at­ten­tion with her cover of Mark Ron­son’s ‘ Up­town Funk’, which be­came the first XFactor live record­ing to hit num­ber one on iTunes.

She then went on to smash the charts with her de­but sin­gle ‘ Sax’ which shot into the top three of the sin­gles charts and stayed in the top ten for seven weeks.

She said: “Come on Coven­try, let’s do this! I can’t wait to get out there.”

MTV Crashes Coven­try - held on May 27 and 28 - will be broad­cast on MTV’s flag­ship UK mu­sic TV chan­nels, shown in over 35 oun­tries.
