Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gary Clark Jr., Hunter Hayes, GIVERS, Neon Indian and More Will Help The Flaming Lips Break a Guinness World Record
A diverse mix of artists will join The Flaming Lips in their quest to break the Guinness World Record title for the Most Live Concerts in 24 Hours (Multiple Cities) during the O Music Awards. Beginning June 27, the O Music Awards will host the first 24-hour award show live stream while The Flaming Lips move through the Mississippi Delta
aboard a vintage tour bus named Endeavor. The Flaming Lips will play eight concerts in an attempt to break the world record currently held by Jay-Z.
During their run, The Flaming Lips will arrive on the bus to take the stage for a mini-set during shows by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gary Clark Jr., Hunter Hayes, GIVERS, Neon Indian and others. Partial proceeds from the shows will be donated to VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. Additional acts and collaborations will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
