iTunes Festival apps updated w/ live EPs from festival performers
Apple has updated its iTunes Festival app for iOS tonight, the app where users can access live streamed content from Apple’s month long musical festival held during September. While Apple has now removed the video content that was only available for a limited time, it has added a number of live EPs from festival performers. It’s also added the content to the iTunes Festival app on Apple TV and started promoting the EPs in iTunes on the Mac.
All of the albums were recorded live during the iTunes Festival last month at The Roadhouse art center in London.
The live EPs are available for select artists including Sigur Ros, Janelle Monae, The Lumineers, Queens of the Stone Age, John Legend, Phox, and others, and run $10 and below depending on the number of songs on each album.
During Apple’s iPhone event in September, Tim Cook noted that the iTunes Festival event, now in its seventh year, reached around 100+ countries through its live streams with more than 20 million people applying for tickets to attend the live show.
