Apple announced Friday the addition of four new bands/acts to the London iTunes Festival 2011, which runs from July 1st through July 31st.

The iTunes Festival is an annual event Apple holds in London throughout the month of July, with a different band featured each night. The company has been slowly unveiling the lineup for the event, and several of the bands added today are being billed as support acts for other headliners.

Tickets are given away by a lottery system. You can enter to win tickets for any particular night at the festival’s website — users with a UK iTunes account can also download the iTunes Festival app for iPhone and iPad (non UK customers can see the app by switching to the UK store within iTunes, but it requires an account to download).

We also noted some changes in the schedule below. For instance, The Wanted have been moved from July 6th to July 20th to make way for Arctic Monkeys. Apple said that ticket entries made for the 6th will now apply to the Arctic Monkeys show, and that you will need to reapply for July 20th if you want to see The Wanted.
