iTunes Festival 2011

Apparently I’m just out of the loop when it comes to this.  The past couple of days when I’ve been getting on iTunes, there’s been a “Countdown to iTunes Festival” (we’re at 8 days now).  Apparently this festival has been going on every year since 2007, but this is the first time I’ve heard of it.

The festival takes place at the Roundhouse in London, England.  There will be 60 artists performing over 31 consecutive nights.  All the tickets are free, you just have to apply on the iTunes Festival website.

If you can’t make it to London, you can watch all the concerts on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on the iTunes Festival App.  You can also watch any of the old performances since 2007 on the apps.

This year’s line-up includes Paul Simon, Linkin Park, Neon Trees, Arctic Monkeys, ADELE, Bruno Mars, My Chemical Romance, Foo Fighters, The Script, Duran Duran, Coldplay, James Morrison and Moby.

I will definitely be downloading the free app and watching the concerts starting July 1.  Really wish I lived in London for this!
