If they were to play the Apple Music Festival, how do you go about applying for tickets exactly?

I've looked at the website and like any Apple product there isn't enough info and they kinda leave you to figure it out. Even the FAQ page doesn't see right to me...

I don't know if it's changed but when they did it in 2011 it was essentially a lottery/prize draw system. You signed up for the shows you're interested in and then crossed your fingers.

They used to have an App for it.

Now I believe you enter using the iTunes store on any iOS or MacOS Device.

Last year I was spammed by them with info on how to apply when the time came

OK, I'll keep an eye on my emails in that case.
I remember trying in 2011 easily enough online, the only down side was that I didn't get tickets!

Don't most of the tix go to people living in the London area? Sure I read that somewhere.

Don't think so, you're perhaps thinking of Radio 1s Big Weekend where priority goes to locals. But anyway let's not get carried away, they've not been announced or anything.

I've completely convinced myself this is happening

You're right about the lottery system. I've never had any joy getting tickets for any of the previous ones (and I live in London )

So I looked at the R1 schedule for September 1st, and there are no special programmes listed for this. I haven't listened to R1 in years but the regular live lounge appearances still seem to be in the 10am show.

Only problem with that of course is that even if they started at exactly 10am, that's 2am for LA, which seems unlikely. The earliest logical start would be 9am LA, that's 5pm UK time, but it just seems to be the usual chart show then, and everything after that is dance shows.

I suppose it could be during the breakfast show from 6am, so it's 11pmish in the US but that's going to miss a lot of listeners.

Have they said on-air what is happening? Will it just be shown online as a video stream?

Nothing was said when he spoke to Annie Mac on Wednesday, just the date. I'll keep an ear out.

Last year Justin Beiber was Live from LA but his set started in the Breakfast Show @ 7.45 then ran into Clara's - it went out live as a video on the BBC website then the performances and interview could be watched on the red button later.

I've been decorating the past 2 days, Radio One has been on & Clara has mentioned it a few times but made no reference that it's on the Breakfast Show.

EDIT - she just mentioned again, that it's 4 songs live on her show & the cover is a treat.

So they're really going to play at 2am? Odd. Perhaps it'll be "fake live", easy to do these days.

"BBC Pre-recorded Live Lounge" - that won't possibly cause any OfCom complaints.

They can get away with it as long as there is nothing happening that relies on it being live, such as competitions and the like. A lot of BBC shows air "live" but aren't.

So I still haven't bothered listening to R1 but they tweeted this GIF to confirm they're on the 10am show.

https://twitter.com/BBCR1/status/903202815035789312

So, either they are going to rock down to 606 and play at 2am in the morning or they'll be pre-recording it earlier and R1 pretends it is live.

I suppose if they have been in the East for a while their body clocks may be off and 2am makes sense to play. Not sure how that works.

They have two "entries" for it. The full length Clara show

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09202gv

And also this entry for live lounge that is set at 15 minutes. Not sure if that'll be video?

As a Californian somewhat unfamiliar with the BBC, is there an opportunity to listen live if I'm up that late tonight?
