The 2010 iTunes Festival at The Roundhouse.

The iTunes Festival is a music concert series sponsored by Apple Inc. First held in 2007, tickets are given away for free to iTunes users and fans through localized prize draws. Performances are also streamed live for free and available to view afterwards for a limited time on iTunes and Apple TV.

In London, the iTunes Festival has become an annual, month-long music festival which takes place in September at The Roundhouse art centre in Camden Town.

The series made its United States debut with five days of free performances at the Moody Theater in March 2014, alongside the South by Southwest (SXSW) music showcase in Austin, Texas.
