iTunes have announced 10 days of gigs starting next Thursday as part of their iTunes Live series. All the gigs will be available to download from iTunes after the 10 day festival is over. Last year’s festival was a bit later in the year, but all the shows were a significant success – dare we say it, but this year’s line up isn’t anywhere near as impressive – yes, we have Billy Bragg, Alphabeat and Jose Gonzalez, but none of last year’s big hitters: Stereophonics, Editors, Amy Winehouse etc.
The gigs will take place from February 21 to March 2 at AIR Studios, Lyndhurst Hall, London. The artists will play acousticcally for what is sure to be some very special evenings. Tickets cannot be bought, and are only available from the iTunes Live website as part of a ballot.
Catch the following bands over the course of the festival:
Friday 29th February – TBC
