Last year's in-person event had to be scrapped due to the pandemic.
The Recording Academy’s annual Grammys on the Hill Awards will return to Washington, D.C. this year, the organization announced today. Last year's edition was canceled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The in-person 2021 ceremony is slated to be held Wednesday, September 22 at The Hamilton in D.C. Formal invitations and full details – including health and safety protocols – will arrive this summer.
"The Recording Academy and our members continued to advocate for advancements in music policy and crucial support for creators during the COVID crisis. We did this in a completely new way—virtually," said Harvey Mason Jr., chair and interim president/CEO of the Recording Academy, in a statement. "The return of live music, gigs and touring is on the horizon, and we are eager to bring music back to Washington and celebrate the accomplishments of the last 20 years with our congressional allies. It's a score worth singing and celebrating."
