September 1st will kick off the 2013 iTunes Festival. Every day will stream live performances from the above artists and more. All you need is a computer with iTunes, an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPhone) or an Apple TV. This has been going on every year since ’07 and it seems like no one knows it exists. Last year was amazing and this year’s lineup is fantastic. Also, for anyone new to iTunes Festival, the production value is through the roof. The HD camera angles, lighting, stage design and everything else has made previous iTunes Festivals a great series of shows. They’re not short either. Last year’s opening performance by Usher was 90 minutes long. Deadmau5 played for 2 hours and the rest of the 2012 iTunes Festival performers didn’t disappoint.
This is the 5th year in a row that the event is being held at the Roundhouse in Camden Town (London). This venue always looks great when filmed and those lucky enough to win the free tickets always make for a very energetic crowd. The Roundhouse vibe echoes performances from Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Jeff Beck and many other famous bands.
