SXSW 2014: Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Pitbull, more to play Austin's first iTunes Festival

Apple is looking for its own bite out of SXSW. The company just announced the first-ever iTunes Festival in Austin, Texas, running for five nights during the city’s South by Southwest music, film, and interactive conference.

The first announced performers are Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Pitbull, Keith Urban, and Zedd, who will take the stage March 11-15 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre, where Austin City Limits is also held.

Not heading to Austin? You can stream all five nights of music through the iTunes Store.

While this is the first iTunes Festival in the U.S., a U.K. fest of the same name has been held annually at London’s Roundhouse theater since 2007, this past fall boasting headliners like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga. More performers and concert details for the Austin incarnation will be announced over the next few weeks.

Lady Gaga unveils more new 'ARTPOP' songs at iTunes Festival

If you weren’t glued to your Apple TV (or, you know, actually in London) over the long weekend, then you missed out on some killer live music from the annual iTunes Festival—including a handful of never-before-heard songs from Lady Gaga’s upcoming album ARTPOP.

Luckily, nothing ever really dies on the Internet, so the clips of those songs have been collected for your previewing enjoyment. In addition to already-charting single “Applause,” Gaga also busted out the album’s title track, plus “Swine,” “Sex Dreams,” “Aura,” “Manicure,” “Jewels & Drugs,” and “I Wanna Be With You” (the latter is, sadly, not a cover of the Mandy Moore song of the same name).

You can check out all of the videos of the new songs below (and the whole set is here), though the standouts are the manic “Jewels & Drugs” (which featured drop-ins from T.I., Too $hort, and Twista), the throbbing “Swine” (which found Gaga behind a drum kit for a while), and the kinky “Sex Dreams” (featuring the supremely Divinyls-esque lyric “When I lay in bed I touch myself and think of you”).

Check them out below.  READ FULL STORY
