This morning, Apple announced that they will be hosting the iTunes Music Festival during the fest, which will include performances by Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Zedd, Pitbull, Kieth Urban, and Willie Nelson.

“To determine which badge holders will be admitted to these shows, SX will conduct ticket drawings, which grant priority entry for badge holders only. No other credentials are eligible to enter these drawings”
“A limited number of wristbands may also be eligible for tickets through a separate process which will be announced closer to the dates of the shows. Watch your email.”
