The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards is happening on September 12. This year’s VMAs will return to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in front of a live audience.

MTV and Barclays Center are “working closely with state and local officials to implement best practices in order to safely bring together music fans from around the globe,” according to the announcement. They pointed to the Barclays Center’s current health and safety protocols, which include separate seating areas for vaccinated and non-vaccinated guests, and noted that additional specific protocols will be announced closer to the event.

Last year’s VMAs were originally scheduled to take place at Barclays, but the show was forced to go remote. Some performances were filmed on location in New York, and others were reportedly shot in remote cities like Los Angeles and Seoul. The show included performances from Lady Gaga, the Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, DaBaby, the Black Eyed Peas, and more.
