Apple will be beaming Justin Timberlake to your iPhone this fall, when he headlines more than 60 acts at this year's iTunes Festival in London. But you'll need to vie in local media competitions if you want a chance to see him bring "sexy back" in person for free.

Other top performers include Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jack Johnson, and Jessie J.

Every night in September, performances can be watched live or on-demand by iOS users around the world on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, as well as on iTunes on computers or Apple TV. Tickets are free for winners of competitions run by local media partners. So in the U.K., for example, the iTunes Festival app, the iTunes Store, and groups like Channel 4, Global Radio, and Metro will be running contests to give tickets away.

In the six years since Apple started streaming performances from its sponsored iTunes Festivals, Sir Paul McCartney and the late Amy Winehouse have been among those who have kicked off the inaugural festivities.
