MTV has announced the venue for this year's Video Music Awards, with the 2013 ceremony taking place for the first time in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Centre on Sunday, August 25th.

With Beyonce and Jay-Z both rumoured to attend, this year's awards bash is definitely not one to be missed!

"From a vibrant musical scene for up-and-coming artists to epic concerts by today's biggest stars and the triumphant return of pro sports to the borough after nearly 60 years, Brooklyn has re-emerged as a cultural capitol where music, sports and entertainment history is made every day," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV.

"We can't wait to help write the next chapter on August 25, when one of the biggest nights in music happens in Brooklyn for the very first time."

CEO of Barclays Centre Brett Yormark added: "MTV's Video Music Awards is the perfect culmination to an incredible inaugural year for Barclays Centre."

"The VMAs are a symbol of pop culture and have created iconic moments worldwide in music and entertainment. Brooklyn has become an international brand and is the perfect setting for these moments. We can't wait to share our stage with the world."
