Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
Its a Saturday as well :)

So another gig at the roundhouse...just hope I manage to win a couple of tickets. Interesting choice to debut new material to what will be a mixed audience instead of a hardcore Underworld audience.

Tickets are free.

You can enter to win one of 25 pairs of tickets here; drawing will happen 7 days before the show:

http://www.itunesfestival.co.uk/lineup.php

Hundreds of tickets will be given away on Facebook and through an iTunes app:

http://www.facebook.com/iTunesUK
http://www.itunes.com/FestivalApp

For those of us poor souls not in the UK, "Recordings from each gig will be available to download on the iTunes Store."

Also, "The gig will be broadcast live online via the iTunes Festival app and on ITV.com"

For those in America, is there a way we can see it 'live' through the iTunes interface? Has anyone tried this before?

Yes, I'm wondering that myself. The first concerts of the festival start on July 1, so we'll have plenty of time to test it out and see.

ah The Roundhouse. The venue where my dream of seeing UW live in England was postponed for hopefully a later date ;P Certainly acceptable considering the circumstances of course!

Wishing a great time to whomever wins!

Haha cracking, I assume it's a pair of tickets? Taking my friend as its her birthday the day before. We'll show these London people how to rock it! Hope someone records it seeing its being broadcast.

bang - just hoping the tickets arrive! it's certainly been a better competition than the itunes facebook lottery. that's the most confusing thing on the internet...

dortyfellowwhickhamer - they talk about tickets in the plural, so i think you're ok for 2. otherwise she can wait in the pub!

Yer, isn't it worded in the way of 25 pairs of tickets to win from the main site? Kind of asks the question where there all being given away from.

Ha, I think she'd kill me if I did that. Sodding trains coming in at £60, but it should be worth it!

TheBang 06-29-2010 04:39 PM

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
25 pairs being given on itunesfestival.co.uk

Thousands being given on Facebook, the iTunes Festival app, and apparently through other promotional channels like Cooking Vinyl.

the facebook thing is nonsense in that (unless i've done it wrong*) you never know if you've actually managed to enter...

yes - tickets that money can't buy. unless you know somebody who wins who doesn't like them...

TheBang 07-01-2010 11:38 PM

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
Yup, per the website, itunesfestival.co.uk, all tickets for all shows are free through giveaways. You can't buy them (through official channels, anyway).

Looks like most of these drawings are picking and notifying winners about 5-7 days before the show.

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
Some people have been notified already as there are listings on ebay of tickets for sale.
May be the only way to go... even if the sellers are making 100% profit!!

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
Whilst it's a shitter always having to go to touts, the eBay prices of £10 or £20 for the two tickets are still fairly cheap compared to paying £80 for a sold out gig that you do have to pay for.

Guess it depends how much you want to go.

100 pairs of tickets being given away here (link doesn't work yet, but should soon, I'd imagine):

http://www.metro.co.uk/music/iTunesFestival/

If you haven't won any yet, you probably have a good chance at this one.

whatmakesustick 07-12-2010 08:42 AM

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
I am wondering just how busy this gig will be. With so many tickets being given away at the last minute, and I suspect, many tickets won by people who are not bothered about going to the gig (i.e. some people just select all the gigs when entering the itunes/facebook competition). My brother was photographing at the Ozzy gig last weekend and he said it was nowhere-near full. Really interested to see how a mostly (I suspect) 'non-underworld fanbase' crowd will react.

razorpilot 07-12-2010 08:54 AM

Re: Underworld @ iTunes festival July 17th
 
I think it will be pretty full, but I agree, I think it will be mostly attended by 'non-underworld fanbase'. The reactions on faceboook to the other itunes gigs have been far from complimentary on the crowd atmosphere, people stood motionless, talking through sets etc. There will be people there just for .NUXX, but I'm not going to let anyone spoil this gig for me!! Plus it may open some new eyes to UW music!
