MOBO Awards return for 2020

19 November 2019

THE MOBO Awards, a celebration of music of black origin and culture, will return next year  after a two-year hiatus, taken to “bring the platform to brand new heights”.

The awards, established in 1996, will take place on 12 November at London’s The SSE Arena (cap. 12,500).

“We felt empowered to bring MOBO back to Brent [in which the arena is located] to coincide with the borough’s Year of Culture because this is where our fight to challenge the status quo to create a level playing field started,” says MOBO founder and CEO Kanya King CBE.

“We are returning with even more determination and energy to support and boost our culture wherever we can, and 2020 will see many positive changes that will impact more and more talented young people, to help ensure that the younger generation will also dare to dream.”

Among the artistes who have performed at the awards are Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Stormzy, P Diddy, Sade and Amy Winehouse.

Tickets range from £25 to £49.
