In preparation for this year’s iTunes Festival next month, Apple has brought back the iTunes Festival channel on the Apple TV. The channel appears automatically over-the-air without any manual updating or notification.

Popular artists such as Elton John, Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding, and Justin Timberlake will take the stage in London for 30 days of live performances that are streamed and available afterwards through the Apple TV channel or iOS app.

The free universal iOS app has been updated with a “refreshed design” and includes all of the information about this year’s line-up and news.

Just a couple of weeks ago, we reported that VEVO is working on its own Apple TV channel to be released shortly. This channel will stream music videos from VEVO TV.
