It’s almost over. The month long iTunes Festival, which has taken place once again at the Roundhouse in London will say goodbye to Apple and iTunes for another year.

Throughout the month of September the world has been invited to London, whether it be in person or from the comfort of their own home, to watch the best in the business perform.

We’ve had performances from acts such as deadmau5, Kasabian, Calvin Harris, Sam Smith, and Pharrell Williams.

We’ve also seen performances from artists including Elbow, Paolo Nutini, The Script, Rudimental, Ben Howard, Jessie J, Kylie and last night Ed Sheeran.

Tickets to the month long event were completely free of charge and were made available on iTunes on a first-come first-serve basis for some lucky lucky people.

If you couldn’t attend then a live stream was also made available, completely free of charge, online so you didn’t have to miss out.

iTunes was the place to be or alternatively you could access the stream from your iOS device or if you had one, your Apple TV which would give you that big-screen experience.

However it’s not over yet. We still have one more night of the festival to go and that’s tonight, featuring a performance from Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo.

Plácido Domingo isn’t just one of the three tenors though, he’s also taken on a conducting role taking control of concert and opera performances.

Before Plácido takes to the stage later tonight, 27-year-old Georgian concert pianist Khatia Buniatishvili will open the final night of the festival.

Remember, if you can’t be in London then you can check out the festival from the comfort of your own home via iTunes.
