iTunes Festival adds Elton John and Arctic Monkeys to its impressive lineup

We're still a way out from the start of Apple's annual iTunes Festival, but the lineup is starting to fill up nicely. The latest big name additions are Elton John and Arctic Monkeys, joining such artists as Justin Timberlake, Kings of Leon, Pixies and Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Elton John will take to the Roundhouse stage on September 12, while Arctic Monkeys will play the North London venue on September 9. As with the other concerts in the festival, UK music fans can apply for tickets via iTunes or via the iTunes Festival app on iOS. There's not many spaces left on the bill, but Apple continues to attract some of the biggest names in music. Anyone applying for tickets to either of these?
