Elbow, Paolo Nutini, Rudimental, Ryan Adams and Lenny Kravitz are among the newly announced artists confirmed to play at the iTunes Festival in London next month.

The artists join previously announced headliners Kasabian, Pharrell Williams, Kylie Minogue, David Guetta, Beck, Sam Smith and Robert Plant, who will perform at the Roundhouse in Camden.
Rudimental said in a statement that they were “really excited” to be playing the iTunes Festival again.
“A couple of years ago we played it for the first time supporting Ed Sheeran and had a lot of fun, so we can’t wait to be back in the Roundhouse headlining!” they said.
More artists are due to be announced closer to the opening night, with Taylor Swift touted as a potential headliner following the release of her new album 1989.
The popular event, returning for an eighth year, will see more than 60 artists take to the stage. Fans can win free tickets by entering the official ballot, which can be accessed via the iTunes store.
