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.
