The EMAs came to Germany for the first time in 1994

The MTV EMAs were first held in Germany in 1994, more precisely in Berlin. In 2009, the award ceremony was again moved to the capital. In 2007 it was Munich’s turn, in 2001 and 2012 Frankfurt. In 2021, the MTV Europe Music Awards were broadcast live from Hungary. The “Generation Change” prize was awarded there for the first time. This honors activists who support the LGBTQ movement.
