Apple Adds Video Streaming To iTunes Festival London App



Can’t make it to this year’s iTunes Festival in London? Don’t worry — you’ll be able to enjoy the whole thing live from the comfort of your armchair. Apple has today updated its official iTunes Festival London app to add video streaming for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Apple has updated the iTunes Festival app several times recently in preparation for the big event next month, and for the first time ever, it’s now available to those in the United States. So even if you’re thousands of miles away, you’ll be able to watch every act live — or catch up with selected shows later on “for a limited time.”

On Thursday, Apple began offering six free singles from artists playing at the festival through the Apple Store app. The tracks include “Trying To Be Cool” by Phoenix, “Workin’ Woman Blues” by Valerie June, “2013” by Primal Scream,
and “My Love Took Me Down To The River To Silence Me” by Little Green Cars.

Apple has certainly stepped up its promotion of the iTunes Festival event this year; in addition to the app updates and the free singles, it has also been advertising the event on TV, in newspapers, and on the radio. As usual, the event is completely free to attend, and you can apply for tickets now via the iTunes Festival app.
