Ten-time Grammy Award-winning global superstar Taylor Swift will be honored at the 2019 “Teen Choice Awards” with its first-ever Icon Award Sunday, Aug. 11, in Hermosa Beach.

It's the first time the small beach town has hosted the event, which will air 8 to 10 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed on FOX.

The free event will take place on the beach, just south of the Hermosa Beach pier, according to Mayor Stacey Armato, who added that approximately 3,000 wristbands will be given out to residents of Hermosa, Redondo and Manhattan Beach to encourage locals to walk or bike to the venue. Details about wristband distribution are pending from FOX.
