MTV Is Exploring Ideas to Keep the VMAs in August!

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards might still happen in August as planned!

MTV is exploring ideas to host the show on August 30, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

“We’re exploring with government officials, the medical community and key stakeholders on how to safely hold the 2020 VMAs at Barclays Center on August 30th,” an MTV spokesperson tells Variety. “The health of everyone involved is our number one priority. Additionally, we are working on several contingency plans to bring music’s biggest night to audiences everywhere.”

The VMAs were held at the Barclays Center back in 2013 and this would mark back-to-back years for the event being hosted on the east coast. Last year, it was held at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

MTV has alerted talent reps and agents to the proposed event date so that celebs can get the date on their schedule.
