iTunes Festival 2013: Line-Up

As if we needed another reason to be jealous of the British. The annual iTunes Festival is currently going on and will continue throughout September. The festival has been bringing in some of music’s most talented artists since 2007 and this year is no different. What I love about iTunes Festival is that they don’t just feature the latest and the greatest, but they showcase emerging artists as well, like Jake Bugg and The 1975. From Kendrick Lamar to Sigur Rós to Avicii to Lady Gaga, there’s bound to be a show you want to see. You can watch the performances live or view them afterwards on your computer using iTunes or on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch through the official iTunes Festival app.

Shows I’m looking forward to: Bastille, Kings of Leon, The 1975, Vampire Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Haim, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, and Justin Timberlake…just to name a few.
