The 13th Annual Metro FM Music Awards were held in Durban at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Conference Centre on Saturday 1 March, 2014. The awards' theme was "Celebrating 20 Years of Beat", and the event had the audience dancing through two decades of South African musical history. The show, produced by the events division of Blue Moon, was a spectacle of never-before seen collaborations showcasing musical diversity, as well as celebrating 20 years of democracy in SA. Viewers at home watched on SABC1 or, for the first time, via a live stream on YouTube. For the second year in a row, comments by fans on Twitter, using the tag #MMA13, saw the event trend globally.
