Update September 2017: This is usually the place we tell you all about how to watch Apple’s annual Music Festival, but we’re sad to tell you that in 2017 Apple has decided not to run the event.
The hugely popular Apple Music Festival made it 10 years, after starting life as the iTunes Festival back in 2006. The festival was free for those who have an Apple Music subscription, with users applying for tickets for the various acts via the Apple Music website. Last year’s Apple Music Festival took place over 10 nights and included artists like Britney Spears and Robbie Williams.

How to watch Apple Music Festival 2016 online
Only those local to London were able to physically go along to the Apple Music Festival – but what about everybody else? Apple didn’t forget about fans around the world. The company live-streamed every performance from the Festival, which was available to everybody who subscribed to Apple Music. Users of the three-month free trial to Apple Music could also access the live stream.
The stream was viewable on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 9.2.2 or later, or fourth-gen AppleTVs. It was also available on PC and Mac using iTunes (version 12.4 or later), and on Android using the Apple Music app (version 1.1).
