For five days, from March 11th to the 15th, Apple will be presenting the iTunes Music Festival, held at ACL Live in the Moody Theater. Acts scheduled to appear include Coldplay, Pitbull, Imagine Dragons, Keith Urban, ZEDD and more.
The iTunes Music Festival originally began in London to much success, This festival, concurrent with South By Southwest, will be the festival's American debut.
“The iTunes Festival in London has become an incredible way for Apple to share its love of music with our customers,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “We're excited about the incredible lineup of artists performing and SXSW is the perfect place to debut the first iTunes Festival in the US.”
