MTV’s Video Music Awards (affectionately known as the VMAs) will invade the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn this Sunday (August 25). The good folks at Complex managed to get photos that provide a sneak preview of the show’s set and seating arrangements for your viewing pleasure.

As you may or may not know, renowned artist KAWS’ specially redesigned the 2013 Moonman. The stage will don a pair of large scale versions of his interpretation of the iconic award.

Many of the your favorite artists (cite rappers and Hip-Hop figures) will be clustered together this year. A$AP Rocky will sit alongside 2 Chainz with Drake a row in front of them. T.I. will be seated next to Pharrell right behind their “Blurred Lines” collaborator, Robin Thicke.

In other VMA news, the aforementioned YMCMB rapper will grace the stage during the show. Yeezus is also set to perform his single “Black Skinhead.” The latter should be one of the most talked about moments of the night.

Hit the jump to get an advanced look at the VMA decor.
