The O Music Awards are back! Last year, The Flaming Lips set a Guinness World Record for the Most Concerts Played in 24 Hours (Multiple Cities), and this year’s outing looks to be equally exciting. The O Music Awards return on June 19th at 7PM ET for a 24-hour live stream party to celebrate and honor the artists, innovators and fans that are impacting music, technology and counter culture.
This year’s OMA nominees are a diverse bunch that includes Frank Ocean (Must Follow Artist on Twitter and Too Much Ass for TV), Beck (Best Interactive Music Video and Analog Genius), Macklemore (Best Web-Born Artist), You Oughta Know artist Ed Sheeran (Fan Army FTW) and more. You can vote for your favorites across all of the categories beginning … NOW!
This year, for the first time in O Music Awards history, the program will feature a “Make a Band Famous” award and opportunity, nominees for which are chosen via the Artist Platform and committee. 10 bands have been selected for the semi-final round— The So So Glos, Chill Moody, Syd Arthur, Striking Matches, Tatiana Owens, John & Jacob, Shy Glizzy, Fallulah, The Future, and Darling Paradeto— and one of these acts will earn a once-in-a-lifetime shot to play VMA weekend in August!
The O Music Awards will also feature The Roots band leader and drummer ?uestlove kicking off a 24-hour-drum-a-thon that will serve as the heartbeat for “Live Music Day.”
