The Weeknd and Mum­ford & Sons are the re­spec­tive, Satur­day and Sun­day head­lin­ers, as Lon­gi­tude re­turns to Dublin’s Mar­lay Park from July 14-16.

With both be­ing sta­dium-fillers in their own right – and other rock­ing head­liner to be an­nounced – it looks like the strong­est bill yet is on the way for the bur­geon­ing south-side fes­ti­val.

Now firmly es­tab­lished as one of Europe’s premier out­door events, you’ll also be able to en­joy the re­spec­tive tal­ents of (deep breath!) Skepta, Pic­ture This, Cat­fish & The Bot­tle­men, Jack Gar­rett, Jay­tranada, Glass An­i­mals, Mac Miller, Wi­ley, Ka­leo, Dua Lipa, Tom Misch, Loyle Carner, Her, Raye, The Very Best, Baaba Maal, Lucy Rose and Rex Or­ange County. And that’s very much for starters!

Tick­ets priced €189.50 (Week­end), €129.50 (Two Day) and €69.50 (Day) go on sale at 9am on Fri­day March 10. All in all, it is look­ing like a hell of a week­end!

• In other fes­ti­val news, Beat­yard re­turns to Dun Laoghaire on Au­gust 5 and 6. Frolick­ing by the sea will be Ru­sangano Fam­ily, Horse Meat Disco, Bana­narama, Toots And The May­tals, Candi Sta­ton

and Larry Heard, one of the found­ing fa­thers of the Chicago deep house scene – who’s per­haps bet­ter­known as Mr. Fin­gers.

• The Ru­sangano Fam­ily also join Hare Squead, Ko­jey Rad­i­cal, Stephen James Smith, Em­met Kir­wan and many more, for the Beats And Voices Of Our Gen­er­a­tion gig tak­ing place on March 18 in the Na­tional Concert Hall, Dublin as part of the St. Pa­trick’s Fes­ti­val fes­tiv­i­ties.

• Up in Mon­aghan, The Magic Num­bers, We Cut Cor­ners, David McSav­age, He­roes In Hid­ing, Ac­ci­dents In The Work­place, Grace Wilde, We and The Oceanog­ra­phers are the open­ing salvo of acts an­nounced for the Car­rick­macross Arts Fes­ti­val. Run­ning from Au­gust 10-13, Early Bird Sea­son Tick­ets are a bar­gain €40.
