Continuing our exploration of virtual live music experiences and mobile apps, here’s news about the iTunes Festival 2012, one of the most interactive and mobile events of 2012.
For 30 days in September, 60 artists will perform live in London and fans can buy tickets to the event or watch the action live on their iPad, iPhone or iTouch. You can also stream the concerts to your big screen wirelessly using AirPlay and your Apple TV.
The lineup includes a wide range of pop, rock, hip hop and other artist like Jack White, Norah Jones, Usher, JLS, Noel Galagher, One Direction and more, all to perform live at the Roundhouse in North London.
According to the iTunes Festival Website “Tickets for the iTunes Festival are free. You can apply for as many gigs as you like…” on the lineup page.
And when you sign up you are entered for a chance to win the tickets to shows at the Roundhouse, but only UK residents can score the free tickets. For the rest of us, all the performances will be streamed live and recorded for download via the iTunes mobile apps.
That said, I’ll be keeping tabs on Jack White’s World Record attempt and watching to see if another Dave Grohl moment happens this year, so I’ll be tuning in on my iPod Touch to see how the shows go. And we invite you to share your iTunes Festival 2012 stories and virtual experiences in the comments below, so we can feature them in a future episode of Live Fix Radio.
