The new www.Coca-Cola.com/music website is a Coke branded music destination that features iTunes integration throughout. It will provide fans with links to music and information focused on giving fresh talent new exposure. In the UK, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, unsigned artists will have a venue to upload songs and get broad exposure on the site through artist highlights, European podcasts available on iTunes, and invitations to play at Coke sponsored European festivals.

"We're excited to announce this partnership with Apple," said Dominique Reiniche, president of Coca-Cola European Union Group. "Together we are creating a unique and exciting platform that gives young people a voice and allows them to refresh their music experience every day."

"iTunes has sold more than 200 million songs in Europe with 150 million songs sold in just the past year," said Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of iTunes. "We're thrilled to work with Coca-Cola to expand the reach of iTunes and bring more great music to European fans."

In the UK, 70 million song codes will be in promotional packs of Coca-Cola and Diet Coke, which will be redeemable for a free song from the iTunes Music Store. Through www.Coca-Cola.com/music, participants will be able to access iTunes and redeem their codes. Participants enter the code found on the Coca-Cola promotional label and choose any 79 pence single song from iTunes' vast catalogue of over three million songs. The Coca-Cola iTunes promotion will run for six weeks, with a 5 song limit per person.

In September, Coke will be giving away an iPod and 50 songs from iTunes every hour for 8 weeks in Germany at (www.coca-cola.de). Coke customers there will be able to exchange their Coke Fridge loyalty coins into free songs from iTunes. Promotions in additional countries across Europe will be rolling out in the coming months.

With Apple's legendary ease of use, pioneering features such as integrated video and podcasting support, iMix playlist sharing, seamless integration with iPod and groundbreaking personal use rights, the iTunes Music Store is the best way for Mac and PC users to legally discover, purchase and download music and videos online. The iTunes Music Store features a selection of over 2,500 music videos, Pixar short films, and more than three million songs from the major music companies and over 1,000 independent labels.
