This year, New Jersey’s own city of Newark, is hosting the MTV Video Music Awards at the Prudential Center, and everyone attending is going to need a guide. #HipNJ is going to go over Newark’s Event Experiences guide and give attendees an overview of what can be expected when enjoying the city!
On Monday, August 26th, the VMAs will be airing live, but there’s much more running in conjunction with the main event. Little Engine Media will be hosting a MTV VMAs VIP after party starting at 9pm. It’s a two pronged event which includes both a main after party and a VIP penthouse, located at the renowned Dutch’s lounge at Tryp By Wyndham Hotel. Hip DJs such as VH1 and DJ Drewski will be running the night full of fresh beats and custom drinks!
Newark is well renowned for its multicultural landscape, and no where does that shine through better than in its restaurants. Everything from high-end Italian at Nico’s, to artful sushi at Nizi Sushi, to mouth watering rodizio at Iberia, your choices are nearly endless.
After a long day of excitement, you’ll need a place to rest, and so Newark has given its suggestions of what hotels to stay at. Some choices include: Hotel Indigo in Newark Downtown and Courtyard by Marriot. Hotels listed even come equipped with well established restaurants of their own, and even rooftop bars.
Between the celebration, fine dining, and comfortable staying you can find in Newark, the VMAs are shaping up to be a grand experience for anyone attending. New Jersey is always ready to play, and this year Newark is representing that! Tune into the VMAs to show your support, and if you’re a local, get out there and be a part of video-music history! We hope this experiences guide helps!
