(Pocket-lint) - Apple has partnered with Vevo to stream its first iTunes Festival in the US. 

The concert series kicks off Tuesday night in Austin, TX at the SXSW conference.

Vevo will be streaming concerts of the 15 different artists through apps on iOS and Apple TV. Furthermore, Vevo's website has a page with the stream, but you'll need to be using Safari for it to work.

Like in years past, Apple will also be streaming the iTunes Festival for free via the iTunes Store on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC, or accessed on demand after. The gigs will also be available to watch through the iTunes Festival app on iOS devices or in HD on Apple TV.

This marks the first iTunes Festival in the US, festivities that have been reserved for London in the past. The SXSW show is a blend of music, film and interactive entertainment from 11 to 16 March, making it a perfect place for the iTunes Festival to debut across the pond. 

"We're excited about the incredible line-up of artists performing and SXSW is the perfect place to debut the first iTunes Festival in the US," said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice-president of internet software and services.

We've compiled the show times below.
