MTV will hold V.M.A.s in Brooklyn with public limitations

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will be held in person at the Barclays Center on August 30, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced at a press conference on Monday.

Cuomo said the 36-year-old show will take place at the Brooklyn venue, albeit with limited or absent audiences. Social distance precautions and capacity limits will be in effect, MTV said in a statement. The company said it will continue to “follow closely” the guidance of state and local officials and its team of medical experts.

New York City will enter Phase 3 of its four-step reopening plan on July 6th. This stage includes indoor dining room, beauty salons and other personal care services such as tattoo parlors.

The Barclays Center, like other city events, has been closed since March after the city canceled all cultural and sporting events to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The square in front of the venue has become a central gathering space for Black Lives Matter protesters in recent weeks.
