The hugely popular Apple Music Festival has entered its 10th year, after starting life as the iTunes Festival back in 2006. The festival is free for those that have an Apple Music subscription, with users applying for tickets for the various acts via the Apple Music website. This year’s Apple Music Festival will take place over 10 nights and include artists like Britney Spears and Robbie Williams. But what about those of us that aren’t in, or near London? Here we show you how you can watch the Apple Music Festival online via your iPhone, iPad, Android, Apple TV, PC or Mac. Read next: Pokemon GO Buddy Guide
How to watch Apple Music Festival online: Apple Music Festival schedule
Before we explain how to watch the Apple Music Festival online, we should probably give you a heads up about who will be headlining each night. Apple slowly announced the line-up, with everybody from Elton John to Robbie Williams and even Chance the Rapper performing at the Roundhouse in Camden, London. The festival is set to go on for 10 days from Sunday 18 September 2016 until Tuesday 30 September 2016, with one headline act per night (of course).
To make sure you don’t miss your favourite artist or band, take a look at the schedule below:

How to watch Apple Music Festival online
Of course, only those local to London will be able to physically go along to the Apple Music Festival – what about everybody else? Apple hasn’t forgotten about fans around the world, don’t worry. The company will be live streaming every performance from the Festival, which takes place between 18-30 September 2016, and is available for everybody that subscribes to Apple Music (sorry Spotify fans!). With that being said, users with the three-month free trial to Apple Music can still access the live stream, so it might be worth cashing in on the trial offer now if you haven’t already.
If you do have an Apple Music subscription, you’ll be happy to find out that it’s available to stream on virtually every platform. Those of you that want to watch it on an iPhone or iPad need to be running iOS 9.2.2 or later, while fourth-gen Apple TV owners can sit back and watch the festival via the Apple Music app on their TVs. It goes further than that though, as it’s also available to stream via PC and Mac using iTunes (version 12.4 or later) and even on Android, using the Apple Music app (version 1.1).
How? Simply click on this link on the device you want to watch the Apple Music Festival on, and that should automatically open the relevant app and load up the live stream for you. From there, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the performance.
