Apple's iTunes Festival in London has added Lenny Kravitz, Rudimental, Elbow and Paolo Nutini to its lineup of headliners.

The eighth annual event will once again take place throughout September at The Roundhouse in the Camden neighborhood of the British capital.

Previously announced headliners include Pharrell Williams, Kylie Minogue, David Guetta, Maroon 5, Blondie, 5 Seconds of Summer, Kasabian, Beck, Sam Smith and Robert Plant.

Kravitz, who plays Cinna in The Hunger Games film series, ‎will play a gig on Sept. 26. Rudimental will perform Sept. 20, Nutini on Sept. 13, and Elbow on Sept. 12.

Among the other performers just added to the festival are David Gray, The Script, Gregory Porter, Jessie Ware and Ryan Adams.

The iTunes Festival will feature more than 60 music acts. As in past years, Apple will also make the concerts available for viewing for free via live streams.

In previous years, headliners have included such stars as Adele, Coldplay, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Paul McCartney.

The festival expanded with a series of performances in Austin during SXSW this year.

The Guardian reported Tuesday that Taylor Swift may be among those that could be added to the festival's lineup. She has just announced her new album, 1989, which will be released in October.
