The first acts have been revealed.
5SOS and 16 more HUGE names have been announced for the eighth iTunes Festival starting in September at the London Roundhouse.
The boys from 5SOS will be playing their show on September 4th, and of course tickets will be FREE – provided you win them in one of the many contests and competitions that will be coming up over the next couple of months.

Of course even if you don’t manage to snag some tickets Apple have announced they’ll be live streaming all of the concerts again to those stuck at home, so no matter where you are you’ll be able to get a little bit too excited to the point of hyperventilating when 5SOS take the stage.
And now we’re pretty much like this:
The group themselves are thrilled about the announcement, saying “It’s incredible for us that we get to play the iTunes Festival in September. Even though we’re from Australia, we’re well aware what an iconic venue the Roundhouse is… and we’ve played enough square ones! Can’t wait to play there and be a part of the festival.”
Other artists announced for the festival include Happy hit maker Pharrell Williams, Calvin Harris, and the Queen of Pop herself Kylie Minogue. More than 60 acts are expected to be announced in the coming months so be sure to keep an eye out here for the next big names to come through.
