Apple has announced the 2015 Apple Music Festival is set to take place from September 19 to 28 at London’s Roundhouse, again. The festival was formerly known as the iTunes Music Festival but “in honor of the launch of Apple Music, has renamed the event the Apple Music Festival.”
“We wanted to do something really special for music fans this year,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “The Apple Music Festival is a greatest hits set of ten unbelievable nights featuring some of the best performers on the planet appearing live and interacting directly with their fans on Connect and Beats 1.”
Headliners announced so far include One Direction, Disclosure, Pharrell Williams and Florence + The Machine.
Pharrell said in a statement “Wow, I’m so grateful to be performing at the Apple Music Festival. The Roundhouse is such a historic venue … there’s always a special energy in the crowd. Thank you for having me!”
This year’s concert spans ten days, versus last year’s festival which took place for 30.
Concert goers can win free tickets to the event, which will be streamed live for free worldwide, available on Apple Music within iTunes, iOS, Mac, PC or on Apple TV.
