After six years as the Radio Disney Music Awards, the Disney music awards ceremony is getting a new name.

This year’s iteration of the ceremony will be called “ARDYs: A Radio Disney Music Celebration.”

Disney is also changing the broadcast format. Whereas previous editions were pre-taped, this year’s ARDYs ceremony will be a live event.

Sofia Carson will host the live broadcast, which is set for 8PM ET/PT on Sunday, June 16.

Additional performers, presenters and special guests will be announced as the ceremony draws near.
