The event is set to feature the cream of the crop of pop, with Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Bruno Mars all performing on the night. Rock gods Kings of Leon and The Killers will also be laying down some riffs on stage.
To celebrate, Amsterdam is hosting an entire MTV Music Week from 6-9 November, where they’ll be guest appearances from loud-mouthed lothario Russell Brand and smooth hip-hop by The Opposites. So even outside of the ceremony, there’s bound to be a great atmosphere around town.
The vibrancy of the MTV European Music Awards strikes a perfect chord with the creative nature of Amsterdam. All year round, artists and musicians will find much to enthuse about in the city.
For instance, The Nine Streets in the heart of the canal district, has a whole Bohemian vibe going on, dotted with art galleries and antique shops. Meanwhile, Dam Square is always bursting with life, where pancake houses and delicious wheat beer offer a true taste of Amsterdam.
