Event to leave London for first time

This year’s MOBO awards will be take place at Glasgow‘s SECC – the first time they have been held outside of London in their 14-year history.

The change of location was announced by soul singer Lemar today (April 17).

“Bringing the MOBO awards here to Glasgow, a city with such a strong and vibrant music scene, is the perfect fit,” the singer said. “I love touring in the UK and the welcome I receive when I come to Scotland is incredible.”

The ceremony will take place on September 30. Nominations and ticket details for the MOBOs are yet to be announced.
