MTV, along with sister channels VH1 and CMT, will stream a 24-hour online-only music festival on their digital platforms. Airing on June 19 at 7 PM, “Live Music Day Festival” features over 50 artists including Gavin DeGraw, Hanson, Kate Nash, Atlas Genius and more. Live performances will stream from parent company Viacom’s offices in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles.
The festival will begin during the O Music Awards, MTV’s online awards show created to recognize the best in digital music culture. This year’s nominees include Frank Ocean, Justin Bieber, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, David Bowie, Beck, Miranda Lambert, Ed Sheeran and many more. O Music is also introducing the Make a Band Famous Award, with the winner decided by both fans and an internal committee. The band with the most votes will perform during the Video Music Awards weekend in August, and will be spotlighted on MTV’s Artist to Watch, VH1’s You Oughta Know and CMT’s Listen Up.
Also performing at the festival is 2AM Club, an alternative pop group who will appear at New Music Seminar’s Opening Night Red Carpet Event on Sunday, June 9 at New York City’s Webster Hall – click here to buy tickets!
