Marlay Park based Longitude Festival has just released its day-by-day lineup. In addition its promoters have also announced a further twenty-two acts.

With the countdown to the mid-Summer festival well and truly under way, promoters MCD have published the day-by-day breakdown, as well as introducing a host of new names to the bill, some of which our readers will be well and truly familiar with –

  • Sigrid
  • Aine Cahill
  • Dermot Kennedy
  • Gucci Mane
  • G-Eazy
  • Young Thug
  • Leaon Bridges
  • The Martinez Brothers
  • Earl Sweatshirt
  • JP Cooper
  • Mick Jenkins
  • Dave
  • Ray BLK
  • Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Witt
  • Sunflower Bean
  • Palace
  • Youngr
  • HVOB and Winston Maeshall
  • Gill Landry
  • Karen Elson
  • Bitch Falcon
  • Wild Youth

Youngster Sigrid is the latest Norwegian pop sensation whose fiery vocal and feisty lyrics have set media tongues wagging not just across Europe but as far away as SXSW where she performed earlier this year. Dermot Kennedy and Aine Cahill, both of whom already have a huge following in Ireland and Britain, are likewise following suit in establishing their ‘rep’ Stateside.

This year’s Longitude lineup features several big ticket names including Stormzy, The Weeknd and Mumford & Sons. Other well known acts performing include Irish duo Picture This (who have a new single Never Changes out on 9th May!), Leon Bridges, Jack Garratt, Glass Animals (whose latest album I reviewed) and the divine Lucy Rose whose past collaborations have included the Manic Street Preachers.

To whet your appetite I’ve run up a tasty playlist which you’ll find below, featuring some of the many artists who’ll be rocking up to Marlay Park in July.  Longitude takes place in Dublin’s Marlay Park on the weekend of 14th – 16th July, 2017.

Weekend tickets €189.50 / Two Day Tickets: €129.50 / Day tickets €69.50 
are available from Ticketmaster.
