Oops! Apple did it again. The annual Apple Music Festival -- formerly the iTunes Festival -- returns this September with a star-studded lineup of live shows headlined by Britney Spears, Elton John and Alicia Keys.

It'll be a good month for counting stars in London as OneRepublic join the 10-night event. You can feel so close to Calvin Harris in the relatively cosy 3,300-capacity Roundhouse venue. And you won't have to Pompeii very much to see Bastille, as the shows are all free.

Elton John will sacrifice his evening to play the opening night on 18 September. Michael Bublé will give his everything while Robbie Williams will entertain you before the festival ends on 28 September. The 1975 and the rest of the headliners will be supported by somebody else too, but those support acts are yet to be announced.

If you're based in the UK and you're fallin' over yourself to see Alicia Keys, you can apply to win tickets by entering prize draws on Apple Music, or through competitions online and on radio.

It's no problem if you don't get to see Chance The Rapper, as the gigs will be streamed live and on-demand to Apple Music members around the world on your Apple or Android device.
