Apple has confirmed first details of its 2013 iTunes Festival in London, which will run for the whole month of September at the Roundhouse venue in Camden.

Justin Timberlake, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jack Johnson, Jessie J, Phoenix, Jake Bugg, Primal Scream and Queens of the Stone Age are the eight headline acts confirmed so far, with 22 more (plus supports) yet to be announced.

As in previous years, Apple will stream the gigs live and on-demand through a dedicated iTunes Festival iOS app, as well as through iTunes on computers and Apple TV for televisions.

Tickets will be distributed to competition winners, and not just in the UK: Apple says local media partners in the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, Japan and Mexico will also be offering tickets.

“This year’s iTunes Festival is the best ever with an incredible lineup of global superstars and stellar emerging artists,” says Eddy Cue, Apple’s SVP of internet software and services, in a statement.

“Music fans around the world are going to love watching this incredible month of music, whether in London at the Roundhouse or on their iOS device. We’re honoured so many renowned artists are part of this year’s lineup.”
