Seoul, Korea – CJ E&M announced on March 17 that the 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), will take place on December 3 in Hong Kong.
“2014 MAMA returns to Hong Kong to leverage the city’s status as a focal point of Asian economy, trade, and cultural diversity,” said Shin Hyung-kwan, Executive Vice President of CJ E&M’s music channel Mnet. “Bringing together the experience and production know-how of CJ E&M as well as amazing passion of fans both within and outside Hong Kong, the festival will highlight the incredible power and popularity of Asian music to the world.”
In its sixth year, MAMA’s impact has spread beyond its origins in Korea to across Asia and other parts of the world. Last year, global artistes Stevie Wonder, Ylvis, Icona Pop, and Aaron Kwok joined to celebrate 2013 MAMA, which was simultaneously broadcast to 94 countries in Asia, Europe, North America, Africa, and Oceania.
