Apple's Music Festival started off life as the iTunes Music Festival back in 2007, and it's about to celebrate its 10th birthday in London next month. Apple has signed up 10 artists to take the stage at Camden's iconic Roundhouse venue, and the Music Festival will commence on September 18th with Elton John as the opening act. While previous years have involved back-to-back nights, Apple appears to be taking a couple of days in-between all the acts to space the festival out.

The 1975, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, Calvin Harris, Robbie Williams, Bastille, Britney Spears, Michael Bublé, and Chance The Rapper will all participate in the Apple Music Festival this year, and there's bound to be some impressive warmup acts helping them out. Apple is planning to live stream all of the 10 performances, but this year you'll need an Apple Music subscription to watch them online. If you haven't signed up for an Apple Music three-month trial then now or closer to the event is probably a good time to take advantage of the offer. Apple is celebrating 10 years of its Music Festival, so it's reasonable to assume there will be some eye-popping performances this year.

If you're a UK resident you can apply for tickets to each night over at Apple's Music Festival site, and for everyone else you'll have to stream the performances live or on-demand.
