In a now-annual tradition, an icon for the iTunes Festival has popped up on the Apple TV, along with a companion app available from the App Store so music fans who can't be in London next month can watch the monthlong series of free concerts.
MacRumors reported Tuesday that the Apple TV once again now features a new icon for the iTunes Festival, Cupertino's free concert series that takes place at The Roundhouse in London, England throughout the month of September.
The iTunes Festival channel allows Apple TV owners to watch their favorite performers in action once the shows kick off, starting Sept. 1 with Lady Gaga, and wrapping up on Sept. 30 with Katy Perry.
The concerts will also include performances from The Lumineers, Queens of the Stone Age, Kings of Leon, Elton John, Vampire Weekend, Jack Johnson, Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake and others, with free tickets available to U.K. residents or from media partners offering promotional tickets.
Apple also updated its iTunes Festival London app for the 2013 event, which now includes a refreshed design. While the shows will be live streamed over 30 nights, content will also be available for a limited time when the month of September is over, through both the app or the Apple TV channel.
