The iTunes Festival is set to be feature chart-toppers and teen heart-throbs One Direction.

The festival consists of 30 consecutive nights of free shows at London’s Roundhouse in Camden this September.

Usher will be headlining on September 1, with 1D starring on September 20.

“We can’t wait to see our fans at the festival,” One Direction star Harry Styles said.

“Every year we see some of our favourite bands and artists on the bill so to be part of the line-up this year is obviously incredibly exciting and we’re hugely grateful for the opportunity.”

Former White Stripes frontman Jack White will appear on September 8, while Norah Jones will perform on September 10.

The events are free to competition winners, and are also streamed live.
