2011 MTV EMAs Partnership With Hyundai Veloster Detailed

Hyundai has revealed the details of its partnership with the 2011 MTV EMAs that will take place on November 6th in Belfast. The Veloster will be the “Official Wheels” for the event, and there’s even a competition announced.
“The 1+2 Band Contest gives amateur bands from around Europe an amazing opportunity to join world-famous names on stage to celebrate the 2011 MTV EMAs.  Aspiring musicians will be invited online to upload their music videos, with the public choosing their favourite entrants before a select MTV jury decides the ultimate winner to play alongside Snow Patrol and Jason Derulo on the night of the 2011 MTV EMAs,” says the automaker about their contest.

If you want to get involved, but don’t have the musical talent, there’s also the 1+2 Music Quiz, which will give you and two of your friends the chance to travel to Belfast and experience the EMAs live. To win, you’ll have to enter and answer a bunch of questions that prove your love of music.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: “Hyundai is delighted to be a partner of the MTV EMAs for the first time, and the activities we’ve set up will provide fantastic opportunities for Europe’s most talented bands and biggest music fans."

“The eventual winners will have to show real energy, innovation and dynamism to triumph over other competitors – characteristics that fit well with the nature of Veloster. The unique 1+2 door sports coupe is the perfect match for the MTV EMAs, and our partnership truly captures the spirit of Hyundai's brand slogan New Thinking. New Possibilities,”
Allan Rushforth concluded.

The competition runs until this Sunday and fans can find full details of the 1+2 Music Quiz and 1+2 Band Contest competitions on Hyundai’s Facebook pages at:
