Your chances of landing a ticket to the MTV Video Music Awards are slim. But you can still get in on the buzz with two free pre-show concerts.

The first MTV concert brings Flo Rida, Cash Cash and Nathan Sykes to Manhattan on Friday, and benefits LGBTQ advocacy organization GLAAD.

Then, Tove Lo and Bebe Rexha will perform in a second show on Saturday.

The concerts, both taking place at Terminal 5, 610 W. 56th St., kick off a celeb-packed weekend before the VMAs hit Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

Unlike the VMAs, where you won’t get in unless you win through various local contests, the concerts are first come, first served.

Tickets for the Aug. 26 show will be handed out at Terminal 5 on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 4 to 8 p.m.

RSVP at to attend Saturday’s Tove Lo concert.
