Sir Elton John, Arctic Monkeys and Pixies are the latest acts to be added to the line-up of free shows at the iTunes Festival.

They will headline shows at the month-long series of gigs at London's Roundhouse in September. Also joining the bill will be Brits Critics' Choice winner Tom Odell and chart-topper Robin Thicke.

Sir Elton, who will also play an outdoor show in London's Hyde Park on July 12, said: "For me, it's a real thrill to play for young audiences - they've got so much energy and they all seem to know my songs!

"The iTunes Festival evokes the spirit of memorable gigs at the Roundhouse over many years... and I should know, I've played a few there in my time."

Other acts already announced for the festival include Queens Of The Stone Age, Kings Of Leon and Ludovico Einaudi.

The shows will also be streamed online. Details about applying for tickets are at itunesfestival.com.

By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
