LONDON ― August 18, 2015 ― Apple® today announced that Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Florence + The Machine and Disclosure are among the headliners at the 2015 Apple Music™ Festival at London’s Roundhouse this September. Apple will broadcast performances to music fans around the world for free, which can be viewed live and on-demand on Apple Music. The Apple Music Festival lets fans get even closer to their favorite performers with coverage on Beats 1℠ alongside backstage news and footage straight from the artists on Apple Music Connect.

 

“We wanted to do something really special for music fans this year,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “The Apple Music Festival is a greatest hits set of ten unbelievable nights featuring some of the best performers on the planet appearing live and interacting directly with their fans on Connect and Beats 1.”

 

Apple Music is a single, intuitive app that combines the best ways to enjoy music — all in one place. Beats 1 is Apple’s first ever live radio station dedicated entirely to music and music culture. With Apple Music Connect, artists can share lyrics, backstage photos, videos or even release their latest song to fans directly from their iPhone®.

 

“Wow, I’m so grateful to be performing at the Apple Music Festival. The Roundhouse is such a historic venue ... there’s always a special energy in the crowd. Thank you for having me!” - Pharrell Williams

 

“It’ll be great to be back in London and we can’t wait to perform for our fans in the Roundhouse and around the world on Apple Music! See you there!” - Niall, One Direction

 

“We’re excited to be playing at this year’s Apple Music Festival at the wonderful Roundhouse!” - Florence + The Machine

 

“We’re super excited to play our first ever show for Apple Music Festival at the Roundhouse, one of our favorite venues in London. It’s also the day our album’s released so that makes it extra special!” - Disclosure

 

The Apple Music Festival takes place over ten nights from September 19 to September 28. UK residents can apply to win tickets on Apple Music as well as through media partners including the London Evening Standard. Apple hosted the iTunes® Festival in London for eight years, and now in honor of the launch of Apple Music, has renamed the event the Apple Music Festival.

The remaining acts will be announced as the week progresses. Though, with the iHeart Radio Festival and Global Citizen Festival right smack between these ten days, will Coldplay still be free to play a gig here?

I think it's even more unlikely Coldplay will play at this festival considering that Apple Music is direct contenders to Tidal. And also, like you said, the iHeart Radio Festival and Global Citizen Festival is also close by. I'm hoping they do though! :)

I think they will, the band have already had a good relationship with Apple plus they have a relationship with one of the main hosts Zane Lowe, I have a feeling they could be playing at this because it is basically the iTunes Music Festival with the same name!!

Well the iHeart Radio fest. is on the 17-18 Coldplay are on the 18th, Global Citizen event is on the 26th so that leaves the 19th-28th bar the 26th

Fingers crossed.. But this would be the longest set they'd play around these dates if they do.. Both iHeart and Global fest sets sound like they'll be tiny sets, no idea why they're doing it this way, they are due a full on return..

Well, they do have a great relationship with Apple.. But they're also very much like Apple. If they (or something relevant to it's production) aren't ready yet, they won't do anything until it's the proper time.

Since the multi quote is broken, i'll respond to all the above replies at once.

 

I wouldn't count Coldplay out quite yet given their relationship with Apple as pointed out already. The only thing is if there's a scheduling conflict. iHeart is actually 18+19 not 17+18, but yes, coldplay are due for the 18th (just a technical thing I wanted to clear up, atlas2000), and Global Citizen is 26th. So, theres a window in between unless another act already nabbed it.

 

Also, it appears iHeartRadio will be a mini set, but as far as I can see, Global Citizen has 4 acts in 7 hours, unless I can't see that they have an opener or something.

Chris did say on twitter, they are playing a short set and the other 3 acts are the headliners.. My best guess is they'll play the same short set at both citizen and iHeart fest..

Apple Watch? wasn't ready for another whole season after announcing it.

That's right! Apple used Viva La Vida back in 2008 and the band played at the Steve Jobs memorial service. If they aren't sure whether they should join, Zane Lowe could probably convince them to play!
