What was formerly known as iTunes Music Festival saw a change in name last year when Apple unleashed to the world its brand new music streaming service - Apple Music. And staying true to its musical roots, this year's Apple Music Festival is probably going to end up being a massive hit among fans all thanks to the event's star studded lineup.

Speaking of which, these are the artists that will be performing on stage, along with the dates as well.

  • Elton John - September 18
  • The 1975 - September 19

  • Robbie Williams - September 25
  • Bastille - September 26
  • Britney Spears - September 27
  • Michael Buble - September 28
  • Chance The Rapper - September 30

Keep in mind, if you're an Apple Music subscriber, you can listen to the performances for free. Users will be able to stream the performances in 100 countries using their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, Apple TV and even an Android device as long as it supports Apple Music.

The full lineup was announced today by Julie Adenuga, the London voice of Beats 1, an Apple Music radio station that celebrates the best new music every day. Apple Music lets fans get even closer to their favorite performers during the Apple Music Festival with exclusive playlists, artist news and backstage interviews throughout September. The 10 spectacular nights of live performances will be made available live and on-demand to Apple Music members in 100 countries on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, Apple TV and Android phones.

And of course, it wouldn't be Apple if it didn't unleash any sort of marketing material for the event. Therefore the company went ahead and released these beautiful images of artists that will be performing at its mighty music event:
