iTunes announced a few weeks ago that they’ll host a month of gigs at the ICA throughout July. Tiny gigs for many of the bands, the ICA holds only 350 people, and each gig will be professionally recorded to be available on iTunes.
The events features some of today’s biggest bands, with the likes of Londonist favourites Mika along with Stereophonics, Amy Winehouse, Editors, Groove Armada and Duke Special all gracing the stage throughout the month long event.
Tickets are free, and are allocated by a prize draw for each date, but if you want to go you’ll have to be quick – the draws close on Sunday night at midnight!
