The Chemical Brothers and the Weeknd will headline this year’s Apple Music Festival according to an announcement made today by the company on Twitter. The festival was revealed last month but Apple has only given us a few hints about who’s going to take the stage until today when Leon Bridges was also revealed to be one of the acts headlining the 10 day event.

The full list of performers still hasn’t been revealed, but Beats 1 DJ Julie Adanuga revealed today that Take That, James Ray, will also join the event that also includes Disclosure, Florence and the Machine, and Pharrell.

Apple Music Festival is replacing the iTunes Festival, but it’s pretty much the same event, offering free concerts to music fans, only instead of lasting 30 days, it will only last 10 days this year.

More details will be posted on the Apple Music Festival website as they are revealed. The festival is scheduled to run from September 19th to September 28th. All performances will be streamed live on iTunes and Apple TV. Residents in the U.K. can win free tickets to the event through various promotions.
