Your One-Stop iHeartRadio MMVAs Checklist

2015 Much Music Video Awards - Arrivals

Nothing’s worse than getting to the iHeartRadio MMVAs and realizing you forgot to bring a very important item. Your favourite celebrity walks by and you can’t take a selfie because your battery is dead or you can’t get their autograph because your marker ran out of ink. Worry not, because we’ve provided a handy checklist for you to take all the guessing work out of what you’ll need to bring.

1. Fully charged cellphone (or Polaroid Camera)

You can’t take a picture with your favourite stars if your phone is on the brink of death. To be safe, make sure it’s fully charged before you leave your house. If you’re one of those people who find their battery half-dead in a couple of hours, bring a portable power bank with you. To be even safer (and have a physical picture to remember the night) bring your Polaroid camera or go old school and get a disposable one from your nearest drug store.

2. Eye-catching Posters


You don’t want to take this lightly. If a celebrity really likes your poster, the odds of them coming over to take a selfie increases exponentially. Put a lot of thought and make it creative. We already made this awesome guide for you.

3. Comfortable Shoes

2014 MuchMusic Video Awards - Arrivals

You’re going to be on your feet for most of the day, so invest in some comfortable sneakers. You may want to look cute in high heels for your favourite celeb, but you’re also going to be dancing all night long, and do you really want to be caught with a broken heel? Stick with flats or fashionable sneakers and your feet will thank you at the end of the night.

4. Autograph Book

18th Annual MuchMusic Video Awards - Red Carpet

There’s nothing worse than your favourite celeb signing everyone else’s things around you, but you forgot to bring something signable. Yeah, they could sign your phone, but it’ll rub off in mere days. If they sign your t-shirt, you’ll never be able to wash it again. Invest in an autograph book that you can take to all your star-studded event and keep in a safe place when it’s not in use. You will always know where to find your plethora of signatures and can easily show it off to your future children.

5. Truckloads of Permanent Markers

22nd Annual MuchMusic Video Awards - Red Carpet

You will regret bringing just one. Celebrities will take them, other fans around you will take them, or they will run out just when you need it the most. Always be prepared with a pack of permanent markers. The last thing you want is to miss out on is your fave celeb’s signature because you ran out of damn ink.
