The 2024 MTV EMAs will be held on Sunday, 10 November at Manchester’s newest live music venue, Co-Op Live.

Each MTV EMA is typically held in a different European country but last year’s Paris-set event was called off in the wake of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. 2024’s show will mark the first time the show has been held in the UK since 2017 when the MTV EMAs took over Wembley’s SSE Arena.

How can I watch the MTV EMAs 2024?

2024’s MTV EMAs will be available to watch on MTV in over 150 countries with Pluto TV also carrying the event in additional territories. The exact timings for the show are yet to be revealed.

Those who miss the MTV EMAs 2024 live can catch up on the action on-demand via Paramount+ although it’s currently not clear when the show will land on the streamer.

The hosts for 2024’s MTV EMAs have not been revealed yet but the ceremony is known for attracting big-name talent to front its live show.

In 2022, singer Rita Ora and director Taika Waititi were on duel hosting duty, with actor Hailee Steinfeld hosting in 2018 and Ed Sheehan and Ruby Rose overseeing proceedings in 2015.

It’s a bit too early to tell who might be performing at the 2024 MTV EMAs. However, previous years have seen performances from the likes of Little Mix, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, Green Day and Eminem so we can likely expect the same big-name treatment at this year’s event in Manchester.

Combine this with the city's storied musical history and here's hoping the event showcases an equal array of established and up-and-coming acts.

Who has been nominated at the MTV EMAs 2024?

The 2024 MTV EMAs will take place on Sunday, 10 November.
