2013 iTunes Festival comes to a close
As far as music festivals go, 30 days of incredible music from some of the biggest stars in the world all streamed live online for free is hard to beat. Well this was exactly what the 2013 iTunes Festival had to offer, with over 60 different artists performing throughout September.
The iTunes Festivals have been running since 2007 and the line-up just seems to be getting bigger and better each year. This year's festival was kicked off by Lady Gaga on 1 September, and most recently closed by Katy Perry at the end of the month. In between, there were some truly massive acts playing such as Kings of Leon, Vampire Weekend, 30 Seconds to Mars and Justin Timberlake.
There was also plenty of British musical talent on display from the likes of Rizzle Kicks, Bastille, Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg, Tom Odell and even the one and only Elton John. Although there was plenty of popular music to enjoy, rock music was also well represented with Primal Scream, Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age and legendary rock band Pixies.
As well as the sheer duration of the iTunes Festival, one of the things that makes this festival different to all the others is that not only was it streamed live online free, but those attending the gigs in person all did so by winning free tickets online.
Even some of the support acts were fantastic such as The 1975, Jimmy Eat World, Iggy Azeala and Janelle Monae.
