It will all be during the O Music Awards, a digitally driven event that celebrates and honors the artists, fans and innovators impacting digital music culture. On June 27th, the O Music Awards will play out absolutely live as the world’s first 24-hour award show. This historic bus ride will traverse the Mississippi Delta, in which two-time O Music Award nominee and multiple Grammy winners the Flaming Lips board a “The Endeavor” tour bus and blaze a path across the region in an attempt to break the world record currently held by Jay-Z.

Along the route and throughout the show, O Music Awards will feature a series of 8 concerts (one in each city) for fans to participate and support the group. Each O Music Awards concert will feature an eclectic mix of artists including Gary Clark Jr., Neon Indian, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Grimes, Hunter Hayes, GIVERS, New Fumes and others to be announced who will play a full set before the lips take the stage for an unforgettable mini-set filled with many surprise collaborations and guests.
