Apple Offers Free Streaming of The iTunes Festival In London

Apple has launched the new, free iTunes Festival London app, which allows iOS users to watch a live stream of the 31 day long music festival, scheduled to kick off on July 1 at the Roundhouse.

The move will eventually prove beneficial for those who live far away from the capital, yet don’t want to miss the music-feast in offering from the iPhone maker.

Over sixty bands will perform at the event, including such musical headliners as Coldplay, Mogwai, Paul Simon, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, the Manic Street Preachers and Duran Duran.

Sadly, while Apple will not produce CDs of the live performances during the event, the new ap will allow viewers to see the events both live and after each concert has ended. Apple did not disclose how long the footage will remain available.

Apple will also provide viewers with the schedules for participating artists and bands and an exclusive photo archive from previous festivals; the iTunes Festival is now in its fifth year.

The company has also included AirPlay support, meaning that Apple TV users can also take full advantage of this free, month-long music festival from the comfort of their homes, saving on tickets and, for many, airfare.
