Every year since 2007, the iTunes Festival has been bringing you a full month of spectacular live music. Many of the world’s biggest stars and the brightest newcomers have graced the festival stage, and this year’s brilliant line-up includes jack White, One Direction, Norah Jones and more. It will all take place in September 2012 at one of the UK’s best live music venues-the Roundhouse in London.

So far Apple has confirmed performances by Usher, Emeli Sandé, Jack White, Norah Jones and every teenage girls dream, One Direction. There will be many more artists to come over the next couple of months so this is certain to be a popular event. Even better the tickets are always free. If you want them just simply apply for them through the app or online. Apple is also running a competition to win a Festival Pass which gives you access to every concert during the festival.

If you can't make the live shows, you can enjoy all the action live on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via the iTunes Festival app, as well as on your Mac or PC. The iOS app even supports AirPlay; enabling you to stream the action straight to your Apple TV. Unfortunately, it looks like being exclusively for UK based users as the app is only available in the UK App Store.

Free download link at bottom of article has nothing to do with the article. Very misleading. State what the link is for. Not nice.

Where there is will, there is a way. With a bit of hackery you can get it working worldwide (that's true for all location-restricted apps)

I have my app store set to Mauritius, because im too young to own a credit card, and Mauritius App Store has an option to make an Apple ID without Credit Card info.

The title of the post is kinda misleading - I was expecting the full line-up and all I got (even from the iTunes page) are five artists.
