UK residents only?

The 2015 Apple Music Festival... Is a failure.

:apple:

And has been every year since it started in 2007 if UK exclusivity is your mark of failure. ;)

- September 23: The Weeknd- I like weekends too
- September 24: The Chemical Brothers- Hm

Ellie Goulding has been featured on so many hits, including her own, I can't believe somene could know who Florence + The Machine is but not Ellie.

There so much Apple Music could do with this. It's a pity that they are focusing on established artists as opposed to new and fresh, something which the Apple Music Service said it was going to promote and encourage. Just another two days of new artists would help - especially as there are so few venues in and around London now.

I must be getting old. I've never heard of any of these artists. Is Apple neglecting an entire demographic?

- September 21: Carrie Underwood- Who?


OK, I'll bite...

I love Carrie Underwood's music, as I do most of the others and genres on the list, but figured many here don't know country so will throw you a few bits from her Wikipedia profile - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Underwood

- Winner of American Idol in 2005
- Recognized by Rolling Stone magazine as the female vocalist of her generation in any genre
- 7 Grammys
- Time magazine put her on their Top 100 Most Influential People in the World
- Many records set and broken for female artists

And seems to be a decent person... no twerking and nude mix-ups to get attention... just awesome music.
