iTunes festival 2013

Thu Aug 15, 2013 9:24 am

THE iTunes Festival 2013 has officially started!

This year is promising to be brilliant with the likes of
Lady Gaga-premiering her new album ArtPop with 'Applause'-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pco91kroVgQ (warning this video contains slightly adult themes[it should be fine if it can air on TV])
Tinie Tempah-most likely featuring 'Trampoline'-[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I[url[/url]

Disagree - what a load of rubbish.

QOTSA and Pixies are the only MUST see acts - maybe AM and KoL too if you like your generic pop/rock.

Robin Thicke won't be around in a years time, Ellie Goulding is just dire and Gaga is insane.

Ok, just highlighting the ones that are the biggest at the moment (who have just released a new song)

Releasing a new song does not equate to biggest.

The Pixies for example have been around for 25 years, they influenced a lot of modern day music and will famously be quoted by Kurt Cobain as being the number 1 influence for Nirvana.

Robin Thicke has done 1 song which has been over played by the media.

No, I mean most...erm...well known? Also, I've changed Robin Thicke so that it's better for you.

I've never heard of the iTunes festival, thanks for bringing it to my attention!
I think that while there is a large portion of the acts on the line up which could be regarded as flash in the pan 'one hit wonder' artists, it's not a bad selection at all.

Any event of this nature is bound to have a lot of short lived artists, if every single person to release a record was to become an instant old classic we'd never have the joys(again, open to debate ;) ) of such things as the Macarena, or Bucks Fizz with the velcro'd mini skirts. I'd happily go to see any of the acts that are due to perform, though they may not be to everyone's taste.

This is why we should get married!!

Not a bad line up. It doesn't half irritate me when people look at music with their personal tunnel vision on. It's music, people will always like different styles. Just flow with it, you never know, you might just find something new to love ;)

My point was that respect has to be gained and that respect is not a by-product of PR.

On this line up are a few legendary status bands, whom of which have been around for a number of years and have fully earnt the right to call themselves great because of it.

One hit wonder bands do nothing for me - get an album under their belt and then disappear into thin air and have the knowledge that they probably never have to work a day in their life again due to their own PR machine.

Bands like QOTSA and The Pixies should not uttered in the same breath as Robin Thicke and his overplayed rubbish.

That is nothing against Robin Thicke, or his fans. It's my opinion in relation to music as a whole. With the X Factor, the Voice and whatever other Talent show - its no longer about the music an artist writes, or performs - its about how many column inches they can get in the tabloids due to Cowell and his Machine.

If you allow it to be, I agree. I love music, pretty much any music- not based on how much publicity it gains but because if I enjoy the beat I will listen to it. Attention seeking, fame hungry, talentless individuals are no more prolific now than 10 years ago- social media may have given them more platforms to get themselves noticed, but it's still our choice whether to buy the music.

I understand your point that it is annoying when music becomes the next big thing because of the amount of money a person has behind them that is how the truly questionable tracks get in the charts, but you cannot say that every band/ artist who is given that opportunity is automatically worth less just because they may not have spent 5 years busking in grungy pubs first.

For the music industry as a whole, yes the trend is swinging towards manufactured pop/dance some of which is atrocious- that's not going to change any time soon and if I stamp my feet and bemoan the existence of anyone who doesn't sing their own lyrics while playing a guitar, it still won't make any difference!

Music flows in waves the same as fashion, and in 15 years time it will probably be back to Rock or some other genre dominating the charts, which personally I will love, but until then ill continue to happily rave to Aviici / Take That/ QOTSA as the mood takes me without any involvement from the man in the high waisted black jeans ;)

People seem to forget that the big bands of the past thrived off papers reporting their 'rock and roll' lifestyle. No different to today's tabloids IMO.

We seem to have gone somewhat off-topic however, sorry!
I wish I'd known about this earlier as I would have tried to apply for tickets if I could have guaranteed my days off.

Except it was just tabloids - as Michelle has pointed out, Social Media, the ease of gaining information etc has just escalated this.

We saw with Carly Rae Jepson a couple of year ago, she only became massive worldwide because Bieber tweeted her song. Had he not done that, we wouldn't know who she is.
