This year’s iTunes Music Festival is scheduled to begin Saturday, Sept. 1 in London and will run for 30 nights. The festival is a celebration of iTunes and since the tickets are free, a way for Apple to give back to their customers.
Can’t be in London for the big event? Not to worry, as Apple is offering live streaming for each concert via the iTunes Music Festival app for iOS devices. Plus, new for 2012 is Apple TV capability both in the form of AirPlay, and a new dedicated app.
First held in 2007, the iTunes Festival is held at London’s historic The Roundhouse in North London. Past performers have included Adele, Paul Simon, and Amy Winehouse.
This year, Apple has invited 60 artists to attend including One Direction, Usher, and Norah Jones. Typically held earlier each summer, the 2012 iTunes Music Festival was delayed due to the Summer Olympic Games, which London hosted in July.
The free iTunes Music Festival app is available for download in the App Store. Apple TV customers should check their console for more information.
