In 2020, the nine-piece group was nominated at the prestigious 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards for the best musical act in Southeast Asia.

They joined other Filipino musicians who have also been shortlisted in the category in the past. These are Sarah Geronimo, James Reid, Nadine Lustre, IV of Spades and Moira Dela Torre.

Aside from being known for their indie-folk songs in English and Filipino, Ben&Ben also made headlines for their fundraising initiatives to help Filipinos severely affected by the pandemic.

The event will also be sponsored by Smart Bro. To hype it up, its subscribers are given the opportunity to win concert tickets and even score a virtual meet-and-greet after the show.
