By Marcina Zaccaria ,

On Wednesday, the MTV announced that this summer’s Vide Music Awards will be returning to the West Coast. The event will be held at The Forum in Inglewood in August.

The venue was known as the "Fabulous" Forum. It hosted some of the world's leading recording artists, including Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones.

MTV President Stephen Friedman said in a statement, "With its incomparable legacy as a world class music venue, the Forum is one of Southern California's most iconic entertainment landmarks. The Forum has hosted some of the most legendary musical artists and performances ever seen and we can't wait to add the 2014 Video Music Awards to this list and create the type of memorable moments that music fans will talk about for years to come."

Renovations to The Forum cost over $100 million. The venue reopened in January as the largest indoor entertainment venue in the country. It has already hosted the Eagles and Justin Timberlake, according to the Associated Press.

The 2014 VMAs will air on Sunday, Aug. 24.
