We’re nearing the start of one of the most important festivals of the years and with that comes the announcements of major showcases hitting Austin. The latest event to come to light is iTunes Festival will be making its way to ATX, bringing with it appearances on March 11, 14 and 15 from Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, London Grammar, Pitbull, ZEDD and others with more to be announced in the coming days. The shows will all be streamed live for free on Apple devices.

To determine which SXSW badge holders will be admitted to these shows, SXSW will conduct ticket drawings, which grant priority entry for badge holders only. No other credentials are eligible to enter these drawings. Tuesday night’s show will be open to all badge types. All following shows will be available to Music and Platinum badges only. Each winner may bring a guest, but the guest must also have a SXSW Badge.

To enter a drawing badge holders will have their badges scanned at a location TBD the Austin Convention Center.

Entry for each show will happen in the following schedule:

Coldplay / Imagine Dragons / London Grammar
Sunday 3/9 10am-6pm
and Monday 3/10 10am-6pm

Pitbull / ZEDD / G.R.L
Wednesday 3/13 10am-6pm
and Thursday 3/14 10am-6pm

Keith Urban / Willie Nelson / Mickey Guyton
Thursday 3/14 10am-6pm
and Friday 3/15 10am-6pm

After the drawing ends, the randomly-selected winners will be sent an email with further instructions no later than 12 hours before the show. Winners will be instructed where to obtain their tickets for the shows while they last. Entrants who are not selected will also be notified by email at this time.

All winners are able to bring a plus one. However, this person must also have a SXSW badge.

A limited number of SXSW 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.

If you can’t be there in person, you can still get a front-row seat—just stream the shows live or after the performances in the iTunes Store. You can also watch the concerts on the big screen with Apple TV—just select iTunes Festival from the main menu or stream via Airplay with the official app.
