iTunes presents 31 nights of music for FREE!

Think this is a joke? Well it's not. The iTunes Festival 2011 kicks off at 3PM EST at the Roundhouse in London, UK. The Festival will feature 62 artists with concerts every night from today until July 31. If you are outside of London and buying a plane ticket is outside of your budget right now then don't worry you can still enjoy any of the concerts. All you need to do is download iTunes to you computer and use this link, which should open the festival's home page in iTunes. If you would like to catch them on the go there are also apps available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. And, of course, if you own Apple TV you can use AirPlay to steam the shows to your TV screen. Oh, and it is all offered in HD! If you are in the UK and would like to see shows live, you can go to the lineup page and apply to enter a drawing for free live tickets.

The lineup includes something for everyone. Some of the artists performing at this year's festival will be Adele, Miles Kane (formerly of The Rascals), Linkin Park, Bruno Mars, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Alice Gold, Raphael Saadiq, Dionne Bromfield (Amy Winehouse's 15 year-old goddaughter), Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Moby, *deep breath*...and the list goes on & on & on. To get it all started is that genius song-writer/singer/guitarist Paul Simon (from Simon & Garfunkel).

So you have about 5 hours to get your internet connection in order and if you are stealing internet from your neighbor's wireless, pray to god that they don't decide to password protect it before July 31. Oh, but that crazy 5h time difference means that you will probably be at work. Well, that's okay because the concerts will be recorded for you to replay when you get home.

Nothing is better than free music...well, almost nothing.
