Apple has announced the iTunes Festival 2010 in London, UK, promising 62 bands across 31 days in a series of gigs at the Roundhouse.

The first three headliners have been announced, these include Scissor Sisters (July 1), Tony Bennett (July 2) & Ozzy Osbourne (July 3).

“This has all the makings of a great gig,” says Ozzy Osbourne who will release Scream, his first album in almost three years via Epic, on June 14. “I’ve never performed before at the legendary Roundhouse, and it’ll be fantastic to do an intimate show there for the fans.  We’re also recording it, so if you can’t make it to the gig, it’ll be available for download on iTunes.”

Each performance will be recorded and sold exclusively on all 23 iTunes Stores worldwide. ITV will be broadcasting the best of the festival from the Roundhouse.

These free events take place every night in July. Tickets are free for competition winners.
