Apple Music Festival is the free series of gigs at the Roundhouse in Camden brought to London by that fruity tech mega-corp. It’s a special year as the event hits double figures and celebrates 10 years of concerts with 10 nights of free music, including those 8 years spent being called iTunes Festival.

Looking for details on the line-up or how to get your mitts on some free tickets? For all the essential information you need for the festival, have a glance at these FAQs below:

When is Apple Music Festival happening?

The festival is taking place from September 18-30 2016.

Where is it happening?

All the gigs will take place at the Roundhouse, Camden’s only rotund music venue. It has hosted the festival since 2009.

Who is playing?

That’s top-secret information but all will be revealed soon. The instant we are passed the sealed gold envelope, or more probably get the email, this page will be updated. Expect big-hitters. Last year The Chemical Brothers, Pharrell, Disclosure and Florence & The Machine headlined, even the support acts are big deals.

How can you get tickets?

It’s all down to the luck of the draw and being a nimble keyboard clicker. You can apply for free tickets soon via a ballot at www.applemusicfestival.com. If you don’t manage to nab any tickets – all is not lost – each performance will be streamed live and available afterwards on Apple Music.

Chance The Rapper


Young Chicago MC Chancelor Bennett shot to the front of the new rap pack a few years ago with his awesome second mixtape 'Acid Rap' – one of our favourite albums of 2013. He recently released third mixtape 'Colouring Book' filled with high profile collabs - everyone seems to be clamouring to dive into his hooky, soulful hip hop with slightly off-centre beats.
