Apple Music Festival Is Coming, Here's Why We're Excited

A festival to enjoy from your sofa...


We can’t find a reason that justifies missing ANY of the amazing ten-day line-up for September’s Apple Music Festival.

If you’re not lucky enough to win tickets to any of the shows, or just fancy the festival experience at home in your pyjamas, there’s a solution: all of the live performances will be broadcast live from the Roundhouse.

Can’t wait until September? Apple has released four of the headlining acts, check them out in action here:


Pharrell Williams


Pharrell performed at last year's festival and if that's anything to go by, we can't wait to see what he pulls out of his giant fedora next month.

One Direction

We’re looking forward to having the boys back in the UK, returning to the festival (albeit, without Zayn of course) to give us a taste of their fifth album.


The instantly recognisable sound of Howard and Guy are a great addition to any festival line-up, guaranteed to be a stand-out crowd pleaser.

Florence and The Machine

Every Florence song is an anthem, and we’re particularly excited to hear songs from her new album ‘How Big How Blue How Beautiful’ performed live. 

The Apple Music Festival takes place from September 19 to September 28.
