Apple has released an update to its iTunes Festival London 2013 app to add Passbook functionality and support for landscape photos. With Passbook, ticket winners can download event tickets directly to their iPhones.

What's new in version 3.8:

- Passbook functionality
- Photos with landscape perspective
- Various bug fixes
The annual 2013 iTunes Festival in London was announced last week, and will include performances from Justin Timberlake, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jack Johnson, and Jessie J, with additional performers to be revealed in the future. The festival is scheduled to take place in September, and offers 30 nights of free music.

The festival app allows users to browse available performances and enter to win tickets. It also provides live streaming access to selected gigs.

iTunes Festival London 2013 is not available in the United States, but U.K. iTunes users can download it from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Someone has used the Passport App!? In the UK?!

Oh
it was from Apple you say, that explains it.

(No but seriously, the App has so much potential but it doesn't get any use here for seemingly no reason at all: Apple, release a very easy SDK for developers to give redeemables out and this thing will rocket, until then it's a wasted opportunity.)

Wait... So does that mean we don't get the app here in the US this year. We got it last year. That's gonna suck if we don't.

You should still be able to stream the gigs. I think this just means you can't get the app so you won't be able to enter for the ticket draws.

Using Passbook also means they've probably put a stop to any black market ticket sales.

I agree I hope more apps start to use it, as it's slick.

Coincidentally Subway updated their app with Passbook functionality this morning. :)
