Ealing Blues Festival
Saturday 24 July 2010
1pm - 10pm
Since its humble beginnings in 1987, The Ealing Blues Festival has become one of
the biggest and most popular Blues events in Britain, attracting audiences of over
10,000 people. Ealing has always been regarded as one of the spiritual homes of
British Blues, largely due to the legendary ‘Ealing Club’ where many of Britain’s
top Blues musicians started out.
As London’s largest Blues Festival, it prides itself on presenting a broad spectrum
of Blues acts and in 2010, for the first time, we are proud to present a piano
player as the headline act. Ben Waters, one of the best Boogie Woogie
Barrelhouse pianists on the planet, will headline the Main stage where he’ll be
backed by The Guv’nors Rhythm Section. He will also be making an appearance
on the Crypt Stage where he’ll be playing a solo set.
The free families area will be open from 1-7pm at the Ealing Blues Festival, full of
activities for all ages.

The iTunes Festival London event kicks off again in July 2010 with over 60 great artists playing
live at the Roundhouse in Camden. With the likes of the Scissor Sisters, Faithless and Ellie
Goulding starring alongside Tony Bennett, Kate Nash, The XX and Ozzy Osbourne, the iTunes
Festival London shows are set to be even bigger and more impressive than last year.
iTunes at Roundhouse
A month long celebration of the best in live music, the iTunes Festival London event will see
some fantastic bands and hot new acts take to the stage at the Roundhouse. Along with Ozzy,
Kate Nash, The XX, Faithless, Ellie Goulding, Tony Bennett and the Scissor Sisters, some of the
biggest names in the music business will be performing live and loud for everyone lucky enough
to get hold of tickets.
One of the most exclusive free festivals to take place in London, for 2010 the iTunes Festival will
once again take up residence at the Roundhouse with a much bigger lineup and a longer show
run, giving you even more chance to be there and see your favourite artists play. But as with
last year's event, each and every iTunes Festival London session will be recorded and available
for download on the iTunes site, meaning that you won't miss out on a thing.

Incredible 2010 line up
Although the full line up is yet to be confirmed for the 2010 festival, the acts already lined up
are pretty impressive, with Ozzy Osbourne, Faithless, Ellie Goulding and Tony Bennett joining
the mighty Scissor Sisters on the Roundhouse stage. And with last year's festival having Simple
Minds, Bloc Party, Mika, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Bat For Lashes, La Roux, Friendly Fires, Placebo,
Calvin Harris and Kasabian all taking part, there are high expectations that 2010 will boast a
line up of a similiarly sublime calibre.
