Last month we confirmed that a host of big names including Calvin Harris, Kasabian and Kylie Minogue were set to perform in London next month at the 2014 iTunes Festival.

The event will run throughout the month of September and now even more names have been added to quite possibly one of the best line-ups so far.

The iTunes Festival takes place in the Roundhouse in London and some nights will even see two or three artists perform with one headline act closing the night.

Tickets to the festival are free and you have to apply for them online and confirm your intention to attend that particular show.

Apple have now confirmed that Elbow, Paolo Nutini, Rudimental, David Gray, The Script, Gregory Porter, Jessie Ware, Ryan Adams and Lenny Kravitz will perform.

They join the previously confirmed Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, and David Guetta who will also headline alongside support acts including former Busted star Charlie Simpson.

Rudimental commented on the announcement in a statement and said: “A couple of years ago we played it for the first time supporting Ed Sheeran and had a lot of fun, so we can’t wait to be back in the Roundhouse headlining,”

As Apple have done in previous years, for those who can’t attend in person, live streams will be made available through iTunes and on iOS devices.

Rudimental have had a busy summer and we can't wait to see them in London!
