10th annual MAMA
Challenge, Passion, Dream of MAMA
Global music festival, bringing K-pop fans from all over the world together.

Mnet Asian Music Awards

The "Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)" began in 1999 under the name
"Mnet Music Video Daesang" before becoming the "Mnet KM Music Video Festival" in 2004, the "Mnet KM Music Festival" in 2006, and eventually the "Mnet Asian Music Awards" in 2009, marking a new beginning as an Asian music awards.
Held in Macau in 2010, Singapore in 2011, and Hong Kong from 2012-2016,
and three locations in Asia - Vietnam, Japan, and Hong Kong in 2017 MAMA
has since established itself as Asias greatest music festival, uniting fans across the world in harmony.

"MAMA" is not only simultaneously broadcast on four continents,
including Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania,
but it is also a global music festival that transcends nationality, race, and age, bringing K-pop fans from around the world together and giving them the power to connect through various platforms.
In honor of the 10th annual MAMA, this years concept is a reinterpretation of
The Legend of Icarus , a story of bravery challenge and unwavering passion that serves as an inspiration to all those hoping to fulfill their dreams.

Artists working together in the challenge to create MAMA,
Fans igniting their passion for music to enjoy MAMA,
Uniting people through MAMA to fulfill the dream of Music Makes One.

This year, 2018 MAMA is being held in 3 locations - Korea, Japan and Hong Kong with exclusive and creative performances, stage and music
that will be enjoyed by everyone around the world.
