Longitude Festival is a three-day music festival which takes place in the grounds of Marlay Park just outside Dublin city centre. This popular festival has a history of big name acts across a variety of music genres, including indie, rock, electronic & RnB. Last year’s line-up included Kendrick Lamaar, Major Lazer and Jamie XX with Nina Kraviz and Annie Mac flying the flag for the dance contingent. With four stages to keep you entertained, you’re guaranteed to find plenty to enjoy in this year’s line-up which will be announced on the official website during 2017. There are plenty of other areas at Longitude to complement the music: you’ll find a host of top comedians in the Comedy Caravan. And if you feel like some time away from the crowds, chill out in the Longitude Lounge: you just can’t beat lying in a hammock listening to the resident DJs playing some summery tunes.
Longitude Festival takes place over three days in mid-July 2017. Handily located just outside the city centre, you can rest your weary legs in a nice, comfortable bed and jump on the bus feeling full of energy for the day’s dancing the following morning. There are a variety of ticket options available, including day passes, weekend tickets and full camping passes. If you’d like to attend the festival, fly in to Dublin International Airport and then take bus number 16 to Marlay Park. If you’re coming from the city centre, there are a number of travel options using the Luas tram system, Dublin Bus, shuttle bus or taxi.
Although you’re guaranteed fantastic music, the Irish weather can be temperamental at the best of times. No matter what the forecast is, it’s best to pack your wellies and raincoat just to be on the safe side. Make sure you bring your sunglasses, sunscreen and shorts just in case luck is on your side!
