The UK’s biggest celebration of Black music and culture, the MOBO Awards, is back on Sunday 5 December at Coventry Building Society Arena

Following last year’s much-buzzed-about Livestream show, the prestigious awards ceremony is returning to its rightful live show format.

Over the past two decades, the MOBO Awards stage has seen some unforgettable performances from incredible British stars like Sade, Amy Winehouse, Stormzy, FKA Twigs, Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sandé, Labrinth, Craig David, Ms. Dynamite, Laura Mvula, and Sugababes.

Kanya King CBE, Founder, and CEO of MOBO Group said:

“In 2020, we proudly did the unthinkable by producing an award show amid a global pandemic, which was no easy feat.
This year, we are delighted to be returning to a live format in the incredible city of Coventry.“

Over the past 24 years, the MOBO Awards have set a precedent for delivering memorable moments and iconic performances, and this year’s ceremony will be no different.
