When Apple announced the 2015 Apple Music Festival two weeks ago, they announced such artists as One Direction, Disclosure, Pharrell, and Florce + The Machine would be performing at the event, which will be held from September 19th through September 28th in London. Wednesday evening saw the announcement of additional artists who are set to appear.
In tweets and on Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 show, Apple has announced that The Weeknd, The Chemical Brothers, Take That, Leon Bridges, and James Bay are all now slated to perform at the Apple Music Festival. While The Weeknd, The Chemical Brothers, and Take That will perform their own headlining sets, Leon Bridges will perform with Pharrell, while James Bay will open for Florence + The Machine.
While previous festivals have been held over the span of 30 days, the 2015 event has been scaled-down to ten dates, from September 19th to the 28th. The event will be held at London’s Roundhouse.
Apple will broadcast the performances to music fans for free, with viewing available both live and on-demand on Apple Music. Apple will also offer coverage of the festival on Beats1, along with backstage news and footage straight from the artists via Apple Music Connect.
Admission for all concerts is free, however only UK residents are eligible to enter to win tickets. Additional passes will be made available via Apple media partner giveaways.
