iTunes Live London '09
Apple has announced details of the 2009 iTunes Live London Festival, which is being staged at The Roundhouse in Camden. The event will run throughout the entire month of July, and headline acts such as Oasis, Kasabian, Snow Patrol and The Saturdays. Paolo Nutini and Flo Rida are also confirmed as acts, but Apple notes that some 50 more spots in its concert lineup have yet to be disclosed.
Tickets are not being sold but rather selectively distributed, for free, through a custom Facebook page. People without a Facebook profile can still compete for tickets through another page on the iTunes Live website; Facebook users have access to special weekly downloads however, beginning with Oasis' "Shock of the Lightning" video.
Each concert is being recorded, and will eventually be sold at all iTunes Stores worldwide. British residents will be able to catch some events through broadcasts on ITV1, ITV2, XFM, Capital Radio, Choice FM and Heart.
