Apple prepares for the start of iTunes Festival London 2013 by updating the app, adding an Apple TV channel and announcing the full official iTunes Festival line-up.
It's almost September already (can you believe it?) and that means Apple's annual iTunes Festival is about to begin.
Apple has now announced the final line-up for the 30 day event, and has also added a dedicated iTunes Festival channel to Apple TV so those who are unable to attend the event can still watch it from the comfort of their living room via the live stream.
This week, the final few artists that will take to the festival's stage at London's The Roundhouse have been announced. Now, there are more than 50 acts in the line-up, including big names such as Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, as well as Arctic Monkeys, Avicci, Kings of Leon, Paramore, Pixies, Primal Screen, Thirty Seconds to Mars and many more.
The annual iTunes Festival has been running since 2007, and has in the past featured acts including Amy Winehouse, Adele, Coldplay, Oasis, Paul Simon and Sir Paul McCartney.
Instead of asking people to pay for tickets to the event, the iTunes Festival offers free tickets that can be won by applying through Apple, or by winning competitions hosted by third-parties. We've heard that there are around 1,700 tickets up for grabs each night.
For those who can't make it or don't win a ticket, Apple will be streaming the festival live through the app and the Apple TV channel worldwide. Plus, you'll be able to view the festival online afterwards for a limited time.
