In January, MTV first announced Artist to Watch, a new pro-artist and music discovery initiative and campaign across all of MTV’s television channels, websites and social networks. Every two weeks, MTV selects and features a new “Artist to Watch” that spans multiple genres including pop, EDM, hip hop and rock. Each artist is showcased across MTV’s various television channels, websites and social networks. MTV showcases exclusive content across its various channels including live performances, interviews, video rotation, song placements in shows and more.

As part of the campaign, each month, MTV presents Artist To Watch events in New York as well as other cities. Previous Artist to Live performers have included Zedd, Robert DeLong, Jessie Ware, Twenty One Pilots, Timeflies and Austin Mahone.
