Apple celebrates music every year by hosting the world’s biggest artists at their iTunes Festival in London. This events starts on Monday, September 1st and ends on the September 30th. Some of the sixty bands that will be there include Maroon 5, Sam Smith and 5 Seconds of Summer. To watch the festival you can check out the free app on iTunes or on your Apple TV. If you don’t have an Apple TV yet, there is an excellent deal running right now that gets you a free $25 gift card to the iTunes Store.
By purchasing the Apple TV through the Apple Store, you will receive a $25 gift card to the iTunes Store. This, unlike the Back to School promotion, lets you use the gift card to purchase music, movies, books, apps and more. The deal ends on September 30th.
Earlier this year, a new Apple TV was rumored to come out with refreshed hardware and software. Unfortunately it appears that the hardware update may be pushed back until 2015. For software, the television box is expected to have access to more channels and its own App Store.
