Who's giving out free tickets to the best shows at SXSW? Easy: iTunes and Vevo. The first ever iTunes Festival in the US is bringing acts like Kendrick Lamar, Zedd, Keith Urban, and more to Austin, TX, and the performances are being streamed live for all five nights! Yep, that means no pushing, no shoving, and no waiting in long lines to be front row at South by Southwest.
Watch all of the performances live or on demand at the iTunes Store on an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac, or PC (more info at www.iTunesFestival.com). Thanks to a new partnership with Vevo, the festival is also being streamed through Vevo for iOS (free) and the Vevo app on Apple TV. Safari users can point their browsers to Vevo.com/iTunesFestival as well.
Last night, the festival kicked off with a bewitching concert from breakout British band London Grammar, a high-energy show from Imagine Dragons, and a solid gig from veteran group Coldplay. Tune in to see the rest of the iTunes Festival tonight at 8 p.m. CDT through March 15.
