Apple Music Festival announces stellar tenth anniversary line-up

Major names revealed for London Roundhouse shows in September

Britney Spears, The 1975 and Bastille are among the names announced for Apple Music Festival 10 in September.

The tenth anniversary line-up for the festival, at its now-traditional home of London’s Roundhouse, also sees Robbie Williams, Calvin Harris and Chance The Rapper performing.

The festival will run from September 18-30, with tickets only available via a ballot from the festival website. Fans who aren’t successful will be able to watch each show live via Apple Music and Beats 1, which will stream the gigs worldwide.

Other headliners announced are Elton John, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic and Michael Buble.

Previous Apple Music Festival performers have included Oasis, Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Lady Gaga, Muse, One Direction, Katy Perry, Jamie T, Foals, Florence And The Machine, Kasabian and The Weeknd.

The festival will see Spears play her first UK show for five years, after last playing on the tour for her 2011 album ‘Femme Fatale’. Spears releases her new album ‘Glory’ tomorrow (August 26).

Williams’ appearance presumably means his new album will be released in autumn, following his most recent album ‘Swings Both Ways’ in 2013.

Previously known as iTunes Festival, the event began with a series of gigs at the intimate ICA in London, where artists included Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse, The Maccabees, Stereophonics, Crowded House, Editors and Jack Penate.

The following Apple Music Festival 10 shows will be at London Roundhouse in September:
Elton John (September 18)
The 1975 (19)
Alicia Keys (20)
OneRepublic (21)
Calvin Harris (23)
