Making its way back to the west coast, MTV announced that the 2014 Video Music Awards will be held at The Forum on August 24.

The award show will be the first event held in the newly renovated venue located in Inglewood, CA.

"I am thrilled to welcome the MTV Video Music Awards to the Forum in Inglewood," James T. Butts, mayor of Inglewood, said to press. "Since its reopening in January, the ‘Fabulous’ Forum has become the destination for music-lovers in Southern California. A truly historic location, and home to some of the greatest concerts and sporting events, the Forum is back, better than ever and ready to shine for decades more. We are truly excited to shine a spotlight on the reinvented Forum and our great city."

Stephen Friedman, president of MTV, added, “With its incomparable legacy as a world class music venue, the Forum is one of Southern California’s most iconic entertainment landmarks. The Forum has hosted some of the most legendary musical artists and performances ever seen and we can’t wait to add the 2014 Video Music Awards to this list and create the type of memorable moments that music fans will talk about for years to come."

This is just another first to the VMAs. Last year, the award show was the first award show to take place in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and featured Miley Cyrus career-changing performance with Robin Thicke.
