Last year MTV’s O Music Awards (road) tripped with the Flaming Lips on a bus and broke the world record for most live performances in 24 hours. Now we’re excited to announce that the fourth O Music Awards will go down on June 19. It’ll feature a day-long drum session lead by beloved Roots drummer ?uestlove.

Also new this time around is an OMAs category called Make a Band Famous. Think of it as an online “Battle of the Bands,” crowd-sourced from Artists.MTV submissions. The winning artists will get some very lucrative promo opportunities within MTV, VH1 and CMT. Check out Artists.MTV to find out more.
