A festival indeed!

What brings Paramore, Phoenix, Elton John, Jack Johnson, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake and many more all together? Well, the iTunes Festival, of course! This festival takes place in London and has a concert every night of September. The best part about this is we [over here in America] can watch the live performances as they happen over in London.

ITunes has launched a new app called “iTunes Live” where you can tune in and watch live performances as they happen, and you can even catch some performances that have already happened. There is also a countdown across the top of the screen that tells you when the next show begins. The app is complete with a list of all the performers and the date and time they will be performing. You can watch full shows for a limited time after they have already happened or just clips of certain songs. A photo gallery also accompanies this app with beautifully clear photos professionally taken at every show [perfect for instagram]. “ITunes Live” is pretty much a concert festival in your pocket. Oh, and did I mention, it’s free to download?

You can visit the festival’s website at www.itunesfestival.com to see the lineup of performers that will be heading to the stage every night of September. You can also watch all of the performances you want on your laptop, if you have the latest version of iTunes.

Another way to find out about iTunes festival performers is to follow them on Twitter; musicians are masters of self-promoting! Because a lot of extremely talented artists are going to be performing, and because this is such a large event, the artists are going to be putting on some pretty intriguing and eye-popping shows. Don’t miss a minute of the excitement; download the app today!
