The countdown is on; tickets are now on sale for the 21st Music of Black Origin Awards (MOBO) which will be held in Glasgow again on 4 November 2016.
We thought weâ€™d give you a rundown of what you can expect from this evening of top British and international artists (and you can bet your bottom dollar there will be a good helping glitz and bling thrown in).
The night is set to be full of unforgettable performances from a diverse range of acts. The event was last held in Glasgow in 2013 andÂ includedÂ Australian rap sensation, Iggy Azalea along with euphoric sounds from Rudimental and multi-award-winning London artist, Tinie Tempah.
So Solid CrewÂ reformed especially for an energetic performance from the MC collective and former MOBO winners. Their biggest hit, 21 Seconds (remember that one?), was described by the Daily Telegraph as a â€˜club smashâ€™ delivered by â€˜grimeâ€™s amply-staffed pioneers â€™ and features in the publications list of 100 songs that defined the noughties.
Audiences were also treated to performances from Afrobeats starÂ Fuse ODG and powerhouse vocalistÂ Jahmene Douglas, finalist of TV talent show X Factor.
The MOBO Awards are part of the packed programme of music events whichÂ take place every year in the SSE Hydro arena. Located right beside the River Clyde near the heart of the city, this spaceship-style â€˜music Coliseumâ€™ is the perfect venue for this vibrant awards ceremony. This will be the fourthÂ time the MOBO AwardsÂ have been held in Scotlandâ€™s largest city.
Thereâ€™s still time to get one of the hottest tickets in town, with prices starting at only Â£25. Why not make a weekend of it and enjoy the cityâ€™s great shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife?
Glasgow, are you ready for MOBO 21? We are.
Tickets for the MOBO awards are available now from Ticketmaster.
