Technology is a beautiful thing these days — especially for music fans. More and more of the big festivals are incorporating live feeds of performances as part of their online offerings, and more often than not they are absolutely free to watch.

The iTunes Festival 2011 is the latest to offer free access to images, video and other exclusive content from London. Available both as an iPhone/iPad application and directly via iTunes on your laptop/desktop, viewers can tap into 31 straight days of festival coverage. Did I mention it's free?

And not only can you watch live sets, but all the performances are recorded and archived so you can go back and see what you missed — or just watch it all over again! Artists like Paul Simon, Linkin Park and Adele have already played, but you will not have missed anything once you download the app.

Here's a complete list of upcoming performances through next Thursday; visit the festival's website for a complete schedule.
