The gigs, which all take place at the Roundhouse in Camden, North London, have been part of the music calendar for a decade.

Spears said “I’m so excited to go back to London, which is a special place for me to visit and I’m really looking forward to performing at the Apple Music Festival. It’s also their 10th birthday! It’s going to be a great party.”

Also playing the week long festival is Bastille who will be touring a new album. “We’re massively excited to play Apple Music Festival for many reasons, but mainly because it’ll be our first proper London show after the release of our new album, ‘Wild World.’ The Roundhouse is such a beautiful venue and it’s in our hometown, so I can’t think of a better place to play a bunch of new songs for the first time.” 

The line-up also includes, Alicia Keys, Elton John, Robbie Williams, The 1975, Calvin Harris, One Republic, Michael Buble and Chance The Rapper.

“Over the past decade, the Festival has brought the biggest and best artists from all over the world to London and into the homes of millions of music fans, said Oliver Schusser, Apple’s vice president of International Content.

“This year’s Apple Music Festival builds on that incredible legacy and we couldn’t be more excited to have another amazing lineup to celebrate our 10th birthday.” With free tickets available to fans, it will be one of the hottest tickets in the Capital.
