“We’re thrilled to be returning to Frankfurt and once again presenting the MTV EMA in such a vibrant and dynamic city,” said Bob Bakish, president and CEO, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).
“The MTV EMA is without a doubt one of the biggest nights in music on the planet and showcases talent from the US to Europe to Asia to everywhere in between. This year’s show in Frankfurt will definitely continue the EMA tradition of capturing the world’s attention through unforgettable performances and jaw-dropping moments.”
