Does anybody know how to ge tickets

If you live here in the states? can you buy them? or do you need to resort to Craig's List, or whatever works in the UK?

umm... what?

The entire UK can fit into, roughly, Texas.

Are there more artists per square mile?

So perhaps Apple is using the iTunes Festival app to exercise and demonstrate Apple's video delivery technologies. For, yes, you guessed it, Apple's eventual television solution. Live streamed video, on-demand recorded video, millions of simultaneous connections, all proof-of-concept that Apple's television solution works. Ready and waiting for the right time to disrupt the television industry. Just a thought.
I watched a lot of the shows on Apple TV last year and it was pretty impressive, both live and on demand. I'm surprised they haven't expanded it to other events.

You apply for tickets through the iTunes Festival app and they are drawn at random a week before the show.

Not strictly a festival then, more like a tour.

Extremely impressive. It must be very expensive to do at the moment.
I think Apple could be using the iTunes Festival as a test bed for their future
television solution. And as a demonstration to content providers that Apple
can handle the distribution. (As if all those keynote live streams weren't enough.)

And why would Apple need to impress content providers with their distribution prowess?
Well, there's an old entertainment industry saying: "Content is king. Distribution is King Kong."

Free concerts?? In the US of A? The American concert managers/promoters will have none of this talk. None of it.

I'm also curious, has anyone (Londoners or not) actually attended this live concert? How was your experience? Online app-viewing does not count.

I would like input from someone who actually attended the Festival (last year, or this current week). I'm not wild about rock concerts, but this might be something I'm interested in attending next year (about this time) on a possible visit to London. Might be a nice add'l itinerary.
