Arctic Monkeys and Pixies are already set to appear

More names have been added to the line-up for this year’s iTunes Festival, which takes place at London’s Roundhouse throughout September.

Avicii, Tinie Tempah, Bastille, The Lumineers, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Jimmy Eat World, Janelle Monáe, Lawson, Palma Violets, The Family Rain, Little Green Cars, Poliça, Drenge, Valerie June, Fenech-Soler, Phox and The 1975 have today been confirmed to appear at the series of free shows taking place daily from September 1 to 30.

“Last year we were massively distracted by seeing ourselves on giant TV screens for the first time,” said Bastille, who will appear on September 8 with The 1975. “Hopefully, this year the crowd will also know some of our songs.”


Drenge will appear in support for Arctic Monkeys on September 9, while Palma Violets will play with Queens Of The Stone Age on September 6. “We’re very excited about playing with Queens, they’re such legends,” said the band.
