deadmau5, Tony Bennett, Placebo among artists

[Updated with iOS app, Apple TV channel news] Another 19 musical acts have been added to the list performing at next month's iTunes Festival in London. Some prominent names include Mary J. Blige, deadmau5, Tony Bennett, Ed Sheeran, Placebo, and Little Dragon. In all, Apple has announced 40 artists, but over 20 more have yet to be made public.

The festival starts on September 1 and will run the whole month at London's Roundhouse. Tickets are being given away by lottery, but only to UK residents, and via various outlets such as radio stations. Everyone else will be able to stream the concerts live or during a limited post-show window through iTunes, iOS, or an Apple TV.

Update: A channel for the festival has been silently pushed to the Apple TV, and the iOS app has been updated. At the moment, both are only offering information about the lineup and venue, as well as a history of the event, which has been held annually since 2007. This year marks the first time two iTunes Festivals have been organized in the same year; the first took place in March during SXSW in Austin, Texas.
