Apple has announced the eighth annual iTunes Festival, which is coming to London's Roundhouse venue every night this September. Here, we bring you the latest iTunes Festival information, including the iTunes Festival 2014 line-up.
On 21 July, Apple released the first details of 2014's iTunes Festival, which looks set to be a big one with huge names such as 'Happy' singer Pharrell Williams and Australian pop princess Kylie. Additional artists were announced on 19 August, including Elbow, Paolo Nutini, The Script, Rudimental and Ryan Adams.
On 26 August, Apple announced even more artists, though the list is still incomplete. New additions include Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and Mary J. Blige. Read on for the full line-up and the dates they're set to play.

This year, Apple took iTunes Festival outside the UK for the first time, with a week of iTunes Festival performances taking place in Texas in March at SXSW. London's iTunes Festival, which is now in its eighth year, is a much bigger event, with 60 acts performing across 30 nights. In the past, the iTunes Festival has featured acts including Adele, Coldplay, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Oasis, Sir Paul McCartney and more.
Tickets to the iTunes Festival are free, but the catch is you'll have to win them by entering ballots on iTunes or entering competitions run by third-parties such as the London Evening Standard. Tickets are normally very limited, so it really is the luck of the draw. They are non-transferable, too, so there'll be no buying them on eBay or Gumtree either.
For those without tickets, Apple will stream each event live on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, iTunes or Apple TV through dedicated apps, and each event will be available to watch on-demand after they've ended.
Apple is expected to announce the full line-up as September approaches, but you can see the current official iTunes Festival 2014 line-up below.
