It’s time to start getting excited about this year’s MNet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)!
Ever since it was reported that 2017 MAMA would span three countries in the course of four days fans have been hanging out for more information about the ceremony, and now it’s here!
2017 MAMA will centre around the theme of ‘coexistence’, with the awards inviting people from all around the world to come together and share their love of music!
With a week-long festival to be incorporated into this year’s awards MAMA has declared its goal to become the best awards ceremony in Asia, as well as hosting a globally-minded music festival that will bring fans who speak different languages and have different cultures together. This hope is reflected in the 2017 MAMA logo, which sees a visual representation of musical harmonies and sound waves stemming from a common starting point. Check it out below!

As reported earlier this month, 2017 MAMA will kick off in Vietnam on November 25. This first night will see artists from all over Asia take the stage as both performers and award winners! The second two nights of the award show will take place in Japan on November 29, and then in Hong Kong on December 1! With 2017 MAMA being held across more countries, a greater number of artists will have the chance to perform. In addition the ‘2017 MAMA Professional Categories’ awards, which will be announced during the Hong Kong show, will recognise those who work behind the scenes in the music industry and ensure that your favourite artists are always sounding their best!
