The MTV Video Music Awards will return to California this year after taking place in Brooklyn last year. The event will take place at the "Fabulous" Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Aug. 24, marking the first major event to take place at the venue.
"With its incomparable legacy as a world class music venue, the Forum is one of Southern California's most iconic entertainment landmarks," MTV President Stephen Friedman said after the announcement on Wednesday, MTV News reports.
“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."
The venue was announced via a video showing the building being spraypainted on a car, which had the MTV VMA Moonman award on its hood. The California license plate then read “Aug 24.”
Viewers will have to wait and see if this year’s VMAs is as memorable as last year’s, when Miley Cyrus’ performance with Robin Thicke was a mainstay in the media for months after it happened.
