26 August 2014, 11:48

Tenor Placido Domingo is confirmed to close the month-long music festival in Camden, London, with performances being streamed live online.

The Spanish tenor will perform at Camden's iconic Roundhouse venue on September 30th, the final date in the event's run.

Domingo has been battling ill health and cancellations recently, but he appeared in good spirits when he filmed his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video last week.

Representing the rest of the classical world will be violinist Nicola Benedetti, trumpeter Alison Balsom and guitarist Miloš, who are set to play this year's iTunes Festival on 28th September. They'll be performing alongside a host of big-name pop acts including Pharrell Williams, David Guetta and Calvin Harris appearing at iconic venue The Roundhouse throughout September, for 30 nights of live music.

Choral superstar Eric Whitacre will also be performing at the festival with his Eric Whitacre Singers, alongside jazz headliner Gregory Porter on 17th September.

Tickets for the concerts are not available to buy; anyone who wants to see the artists perform must enter a ticket draw online, with winners being announced 72 hours before the concerts. The performances will also be streamed live online, and available to watch on the iTunes store after the event.
