MAMA to be held in Hong Kong once again
Mnet’s annual music festival will take place in December in Hong Kong.
“The upcoming 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) will be held at the Asia World Expo Hall, where the same event was held on the same date last year,” said a person affiliated with the network on Tuesday.
The source said Mnet kicked off its preparation for the awards show after confirming the location and the date. “We will do our best to make this event grand,” said the source.
Specific details on which singers will take part will be decided after the event’s producer has been confirmed. Most likely, artists who have delivered quality performance on the entertainment scene this year will be invited.
MAMA is a music festival hosted by CJ E&M, which runs Mnet. The event will celebrate its eighth anniversary this year. Since its launch in 2009, the event has taken place in numerous places, including Singapore in 2011 and Macau in 2010. But since 2012, it has been held in Hong Kong.
