You’ve danced in the mud at Glastonbury, soaked up the sun in Benicàssim and been thrown around in a mosh pit at Reading Festival. Looking for a new summer festival this year? Go party with the Irish in July at Longitude. Previous headliners include Kendrick Lamar and Major Lazer with other big names such as Annie Mac, The Lumineers and Chvrches performing across the four stages.
You can hang out in the Longitude lounge between acts for access to VIP toilets, phone charging stations and even more food vendors. There’s even Ireland’s first Thermo vending machine to play with; it dispenses prizes based on your body temperature (bizarre,we agree).
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a little more action between acts, head to the Dirty Old Town Speakeasy, a cultural melting pot of acoustic acts, beat boxers and jazz enthusiasts, where you can lounge on deck chairs and kick back for an hour or so. Make sure you pop in next door to the Comedy Caravan, a 1960s caravan that hosts over 30 comedians, if you’re in need of a laugh and don’t mind being the butt of a comic's jokes.
The festival is host to hundreds of food and drinks vendors, with plenty of choice for veggies, vegans and gluten-free guests at caterers such as The Vegan Kitchen, Pasta Box and Kerala Kitchen. And with Heineken, Red Bull and Bacardi sponsoring the event, you’ll be guaranteed plenty of alcoholic drink options as well.
You won’t miss out on a minute of action or get lost moving from stage to stage thanks to the Longitude App. Be sure to download this to your mobile phone so you have easy access to stage line-ups, can set up alerts for when your favourite acts are due to start and to read important information on transport and accommodation.
And whilst you won't have to endure a soggy wet tent each morning you will still have to watch out for pints of beer being thrown into the crowd. Well, let's hope its beer.
- Get here: Fly to Dublin and then get a festival bus to the site.
- Stay: As a no camping festival we recommend finding accommodation close to the park.
