And 'Good Grief' hitmakers Bastille can't wait to perform their first hometown show since releasing their latest LP 'Wild World'.

"The Roundhouse is such a beautiful venue and it's in our hometown, so I can't think of a better place to play a bunch of new songs for the first time."
And OneRepublic said: "We are looking forward to returning to the iconic Roundhouse this year to play one of our favourite festivals, the Apple Music Festival, and perform new music for our fans!"
