Thursday’s concert will be the first Beats 1-branded event since the radio station debuted alongside Apple Music last year. Beats 1 is now Apple’s sole free-to-listen streaming option, after iTunes Radio was moved into the Apple Music subscription tier back in January.

Apple has been promoting the concert via its official Apple music Snapchat account; and DJ Zane Lowe, Beats 1, and Apple Music have also made mention of the concert via their respective Twitter feeds.

Apple has a history of hosting live music acts. For years, it has hosted a number of big-name music acts at its annual iTunes Festival in London. (Renamed last year to the “Apple Music Festival.”)

The 1975’s release I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It goes on sale Friday, Feb. 26.
