The summer festival season is in full swing and one not to be missed this year is Ireland’s Longitude. The festival is out of Dublin at Marlay Park which masquerades as a public park during the week, but often glams up at the weekend for festivals and big open air concerts.
Here is a look at some of the goings on last year, looks like fun doesn’t it?
So who can you expect to see in 2014? Some stellar acts have signed up here is a choice selection, in no particular order, to tempt you:
You will probably already know one of their first big hits Unfinished Sympathy, but they are still going strong and have released a string of successful albums since.
Fresh from their “Best British Single” win at the Brits for Waiting All Night Rudimental will be up for it at Longitude. Be prepared for a stupendous set.
The hottest name in indie rock at the moment is Bastille; they are the band to be seen. Let’s remind ourselves of why we love them so much and listen to their biggest hit so far Pompeii.
Some new blood now with American rockers Haim. These guys have been compared to the legends that are Fleetwood Mac and deservedly so. Here is one you will know to get you in the mood – The Wire.
The best way to get to Longitude is by using the shuttle buses that run from Customs House Quay direct to Marlay Park. A return ticket is a snip at only 10Euros or 9Euros if booked in advance online.
