    Hi I want to win tickets for the iTunes Festival at Roundhouse but I was wondering what time do the gigs start and finish?
    I want to see Linkin Park but how do you find out what songs they're going to be playing?

    I went last year and the gigs were really good, if I remember correctly the doors to the actual concert hall opened at 7 or 8 and it lasted a few hours, if you win tickets they'll tell you the times, although it won't inform you of what songs will be played.

    I sooo want to see linkin park this year, last year I got N-Dubz and example and then Tinie Tempah and Plan B.

    I got tickets to see Scissor Sisters last year. Hoping to get tickets to see Foo Fighters this year but I'm already going to see them at MK so won't be too disappointed if I don't get tickets for them.

    Hoping the line up gets better as it's not as good as last year.

    Slash is announcing UK tour dates soon so maybe he'll be part of the lineup.

    He was pretty good, especially when he took his shirt off halfway through the gig. :lovedup:

    I was a bit surprised I'd won tickets to see him, I was desperate for Florence + The Machine but didn't win, then was pissed when I watched the live iplayer to see they'd bumped her from the big area to a smaller room where there was probs 20-30 people sitting crossed legged on the floor. Easily could have given out hundreds more tickets to that gig. :mad:

    He performed at o2 wireless last year but so many people wanted to see him we couldn't even get it the tent so we gave up. Apparently loads of people fainted too because of the number of people in such a small space.

    Has anyone won tickets?
    Or are you just hoping to?

    Not sure what the chances are. :confused:
    Brain tells me extreamly unlikely,
    but when lookin around more seem to win than don't.

    Anyone know any cheats or tips which increase chances?
    Anyone been before?
    Heard atmosphere is great!

    I won 2 sets of tickets last year. Both won the day before each event. My friend won beady eye tickets this year. Its not unlikely, loads of ppl win, some win yet can't make the event.

    Don't go for The Wanted tickets then!!!

    No offence, just can't stand people who when free tickets select all then when win them don't use them. As your taking someone else's ticket who might be desperate to see The Wanted (for whatever reason :rolleyes:)

    The question is do you hang out for the "to be announced" one's or not :confused:
    Last year if I remember wrightly Pixie Lott and Hoosiers were the big last minuate suprise names, and most had already enterd so couldn't get tickets.

    I think you can keep updating your entry (by just putting down the same info when you select them) as new bands become available.

    I would be VERY careful!

    2 of my mates have been band for entering:

    1.) Applying two or three times using diffrent e-mails.

    2.) Entering like 10 times using same name and e-mails.

    Well then your friends didn't do what I am suggesting. I am saying that you can choose your initial selections (e.g. Beady Eye, Wanted, Adele) and enter, and then when a new act is announced you can then apply for them by selecting just that one event and using the same contact information to update your existing entry, thus not violating the rule of "one entry per person per concert".
