Presented by Alexa Chung and Dave Berry, ITV2 will be showcasing the very best performances from this year’s iTunes Festival, with eight one hour programmes to be broadcast during July on Thursday and Friday evenings.
The iTunes Festival takes place every night in July at the renowned Roundhouse venue in London’s Camden Town. This year, fans will be treated to performances from bands including Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Kasabian, ADELE, Bruno Mars, Beady Eye, Paul Simon, Manic Street Preachers, Jessie J, Moby and Duran Duran. Further details can be found at: www.itv.com/iTunesFestival and www.itunesfestival.com.
The ITV2 shows will also reflect other aspects of this free festival, with celebrity interviews. ITV1 has also commissioned three one-hour highlight shows, going out on Tuesday nights in July and August.
On hosting the ITV2 shows, Alexa said, “I like music, I like Camden, I like Dave Berry. It’s a simple equation; iTunes Festival for ITV2 is going to be an amazing experience for everyone. I’m incredibly excited about the line up and rather pleased I get to spend my July interviewing awesome bands”.
Dave added, “I’m over the moon to be back at the helm of the iTunes Festival for a fourth year. I can’t wait to make the Roundhouse my home for the month of July and welcome some stellar sounds and my new co-host Alexa in for some summer fun and games”.
Each live performance will be recorded and sold exclusively on iTunes. Fans can apply for free tickets at www.itunesfestival.com or via the iTunes Festival app available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/festivalapp
