MTV Video Music Awards Live At NYC Arena In August Despite Coronavirus Concerns

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will take place this summer despite Coronavirus concerns

The VMAs are scheduled for August 30th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a press conference that the awards show “will follow all safety guidance, including limited or no audience.”

How many artists will be willing to participate is unclear.

Even if you were likely to win an award, would you perform at or even attend the VMAs?

MTV and show producers have been working with the Barclays Center and state and local officials to implement best practices during the pandemic

“Among the measures all parties involved have aligned to include extensive social distancing procedures, meaningful capacity limitations, the virtualization of components where possible, and limited capacity or no audience,” a statement from Viacom said.
