The iTunes Festival will run from September 1st until the 30th of the month, at the Roundhouse in Camden, a lively area in North London. The first iTunes Festival took place in 2007. Initially it was held on July, but last year it was moved to September. The first iTunes Festival took place at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2007, and featured performers including Sir Paul McCartney and Amy Winehouse. Since then, more than 370 artists have performed including Adele, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Crowded House, Foo Fighters, Jack White and Oasis. The festival was performed in front of more than 370,000 fans and tens of millions more online and on television. The full schedule of performances for this year’s iTunes Festival has not been fully announced yet, but Apple has confirmed the following artists: Justin Timberlake, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jack Johnson, Queens Of The Stone Age, Phoenix, Jake Bugg, Primal Scream and Jessie J. A total of 60 artist will perform live during the iTunes festival, so I can’t wait to hear who else is coming! Justin Timberlake who already confirmed his attendance at this year's iTunes festival in London, is returning to music after a seven-year break, and is said to overcharge Apple for this free festival. Jessie J, who is also performing, said: "I'm excited to see you all at this year's iTunes Festival. I'll be back with new music, a new look and a party you're all invited to." Following last year lottery system, the tickets are available for free via competitions. Apple will give away a limited number of tickets for each showing, via different ways. So, if you're in the UK, you can win tickets via the iTunes Festival app available on the iTunes Store, as well through media partners like Channel 4, Global Radio and Metro. You can apply for tickets at itunes.com/festival. If you are in the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, Japan and Mexico you can win tickets through competitions run by local media partners. And if you are not in London or not able to travel, you can watch the live shows via the iTunes Festival app on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or on your Apple TV. More than this, Apple generally sells audio recordings of the sessions once they have ended. Have you ever been to the iTunes festival? How was it like? Share your thoughts with us below.
