MTV, CMT and VH1 – some of the biggest musical abbreviations in the world there folks – are coming together for their 24-hour Live Music Day Festival, with more than 50 acts included on the line-up, that will be run in conjunction with Viacom’s O Music Awards.
Before you all get packing your tents and wellies though, we’re not sure that this is actually a festival in the physical drink too much dodgy cider and wind up getting your soul healed by some dodgy self-proclaimed druid variety. In keeping with the way things are going in 2013, it appears to be a virtual festival, with music fans able to tune into performances on their mobiles and laptops. Anyway, among these 50 acts announced for this festival include Atlas Genius, 2AM Club, Hanson, Gavin DeGraw, Kate Nash and Matt Nathanson are just a few of the acts; if those names don’t get your anticipation levels pulsing then … well it’s fair enough really.
The O Music Awards celebrate the best in digital music and feature categories like Best Music App, Most Inspiring Fan Outreach and Best Artist Instagram. Among those up for some awards include Frank Ocean, who is honored with two nominations this year - Must Follow Artist on Twitter and Too Much Ass for TV - while Justin Bieber has garnered a nomination for Fan Army FTW. Prestigious.
Frank Ocean is up for an OMA...whatever those are
So's Justin Bieber. He must be thrilled.
