Apple Adds Moby, Jimmy Eat World, Bruno Mars to London iTunes Festival

Apple announced Friday the addition of five new bands to the London iTunes Festival 2011, which runs from July 1st through July 31st. The company has added Bruno Mars, Moby, Jimmy Eat World, The Naked and Famous, Neon Trees, and Nero. This leaves but eight nights of the festival unfilled, and we can expect more announcements as early as next week.

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).
