After the success of last year’s star-studded ceremony in Frankfurt Germany, we are excited to announce that the ‘2013 MTV EMA’ will be hitting the city of Amsterdam on Sunday November 10!

The Dutch capital is one of the world’s most culturally renowned cities with a thriving arts and music scene and the new Ziggo Dome is the perfect venue to host the hottest musical artists from across the globe.

“We’re very excited to partner with the city of Amsterdam, a true world class music city and top destination for artists,” revealed Bruce Gillmer, Executive Vice President of Talent and Music Programming/Events, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).

“Each year the MTV EMA celebrates the biggest names in music from every corner of the globe and showcases unbelievable performances from today’s most exciting acts. We’re confident that Amsterdam, and the cutting-edge Ziggo Dome, with its state of the art facilities, will be the perfect setting for what will be a very memorable and spectacular 2013 MTV EMA.”

Dan Ligtvoet, Managing Director, VIMN Northern Europe said: “I am thrilled to see the MTV EMA return to my home country, the Netherlands.

“Amsterdam already served as the backdrop for the legendary MTV Europe launch party at the Roxy and we will make sure that, with this year’s MTV EMA, the citizens of Amsterdam and the entire Netherlands will be treated again to a star-studded music extravaganza – which at the same time will allow us to showcase our Dutch audiences’ zest and enthusiasm across the globe.”

Carolien Gehrels, Vice Mayor of the City of Amsterdam, is also honoured to have her city play host to the prestigious event.

“We are honoured that Amsterdam has been selected to host the 2013 MTV EMAs,” she said.

“This is great news for the city for a number of reasons: it promises to be an exciting event for young people and music lovers in the city, it will provide opportunities for businesses in these difficult economic times and it will allow Amsterdam to raise its international profile. A great event at an ideal moment.”
