iTunes Festival Adds More Performers


Kings of Leon and Vampire Weekend have been added to this year’s iTunes Festival.

Both bands will be performing at the Roadhouse, like all other iTunes Festival performers in September. Kings of Leon will perform at the month-long festival on September 11 while Vampire Weekend will follow them four days later on September  15. But KOL and VW aren’t the only ones that have been added to the already announced line-up; Paramore, Sigur Ros, Rizzle Kicks and composer Ludovico Einaudi have all been added to the bill.

As of now, the bill not only includes these new comers but also Justin Timberlake, Jake Bugg, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Jack Johnson, Primal Scream, Phoenix and Jessie J.

The festival will run every single night in September, with different performers taking the stage every night at the Roadhouse in Camden, London. As of right now, there will be an estimated 60 performers taking part in the show. Tickets for the festival are free, but before anyone gets any ideas of packing their bags and escaping to London for a month, only residents of the UK can qualify to be put in the lottery type give out they will be using.

But there is a silver-lining in all that. The festival will be broadcast live or on-demand on Apple devices and via iTunes.
