Take That to headline Apple Music Festival

Take That will be among the headline acts at the Apple Music Festival at London's Roundhouse.

The group - comprised of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - will be one of the star attractions at the event formerly known as the iTunes Festival, which is set to take place from September 19th until September 28th.

They said: "We're really excited to be playing our first ever Apple Music Festival alongside an amazing line-up. We had a great time on tour in the UK and are looking forward to playing the Roundhouse in September before we head out to Europe."

The Weeknd, The Chemical Brothers, James Bay and Leon Bridges have also been added to the line-up.

Previously announced headliners include One Direction, supported by Little Mix, and singer Niall Horan said: "It'll be great to be back in London and we can't wait to perform for our fans in the Roundhouse and around the world on Apple Music!"

Florence + The Machine, Disclosure and Pharrell Williams were announced last month.

Previous performers at the eight-year-old old event - which has been renamed the Apple Music Festival to support the launch of the new Apple Music app - have included Adele, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake.
