The Jonas Brothers will kick off the Live Music Day Festival, which features more than 50 bands, 3 kittens, and a goat. Asher Monroe, Matt Nathanson, Grouplove, Hanson, Atlas Genius, and Kate Nash are among the many performers confirmed for the lengthy event, whih will be viewable live online here.

Andrew W.K., meanwhile, will strive to break the record for the longest-ever drum session in a retail store, a feat of endurance to take place at an Oakley store with the help of some surprise drummers and ?uestlove.

W.K. colorfully states, "When the O Music Awards first told me about this event, I felt a combination of excitement and pure fear. I began to realize that actually playing drums for a few hours would be challenging, let alone 24 hours non-stop! This feat of rhythmic endurance is going to push me to my party limits. Pounding out a beat for an entire earthly rotation will be a life-changing and life-threatening adventure!"

The festivities kick off Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 at 7pm ET/4pm PT.
