MTV Video Music Awards have a date and location for 2023

The MTV VMA’s will be returning in September.

The 2022 MTV VMAs complete winners list

MTV has announced the date and location for the 2023 Video Music Awards. It’s set to take place on September 12 at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center once again.

The awards show honors the best music videos released in the year, taking a look at different genres, direction, special effects, choreography, art direction, and cinematography.

Newark will host the 2023 MTV VMAs once again

“We’re thrilled to be returning to the Prudential Center in Newark for this year’s VMAs,” Bruce Gillmer, President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events, Paramount and Chief Content Officer, Music, Paramount+, said in a statement.

“Celebrating one of our biggest nights in music with the Garden State’s incredible fans has been our goal since last year’s highly successful event.”

Newark mayor Ras J. Baraka expressed his excitement at the news.

“Awarding Newark as host city for the 2023 ‘VMAs’ echoes not only our selection by MTV in 2022 and 2019, but also reverberates our city’s historic vibe as a hotbed of musical genius,” Baraka said.

“Starting with America’s first known composer in 1759, through the jazz explosion in the 1920s, and up to today’s full spectrum of genres from hip hop to opera, Newark has long served as America’s turntable for harmonic expression.”

He continued, “The relevance of the Video Music Awards rising up today from the same city that registered the film and video industry’s first nitrocellulose patent is not lost on me as Newark continues to sit squarely at the crossroads of motion picture and music.”
