LONGITUDE ANNOUNCES STRONGEST LINE-UP YET
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.
