Show to air live on Oct. 20.
The 2005 MTV Video Music Awards Latin America will be broadcast live from Playa del Carmen in the Mexican Caribbean. The event has taken place in Miami since its inception in 2002.
The VMALA’s will air live Oct. 20 from a theater in Xcaret Park.
The VMALA’s move is consistent with the network's original plan of having an awards show that travels to different Latin American locations. MTV Latin America has aired several successful specials from different Mexican locations.
“The market has been tested. We’re ready and it’s responding,” says Pierluigi Gazzolo, managing director of MTV Networks Latin America.
Confirmed to perform at the show is the Foo Fighters.
