About MAMA
MAMA is Asia’s biggest music awards, acclaimed by fans around the world for its advanced stage production and mega-scale performances. It has also been instrumental in introducing the latest K-Pop trends and Korea’s high-end production system to global audience.

MAMA’s origin traces back to 1999, and it was then called the Mnet KM Music Festival (MKMF), which led to the growth of the Korean music industry. In 2009, MKMF was renamed the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA), and in 2010, its Asian tour was launched in Macau, followed by 2011 MAMA in Singapore. MAMA has been held in Hong Kong since 2012, highlighting the event’s pan-Asian popularity. MAMA has now grown to be an exchange ground for fans and artists in the global music industry.

MAMA impact has spread far beyond its origins in Korea to across Asia and other parts of the world. As for last year, world famous artists and producers including Timbaland, Gallant and Wiz Khalifa joined to celebrate 2016 MAMA, which was simultaneously broadcasted to 97 countries across Asia, Europe, North America, Africa, and Oceania reaching 2.4 billion people worldwide.
