Longitude 2018

Bad news if you wanted to sneak in some nitrous oxide.

If you’re anything like us, you’re absolutely buzzing for Longitude 2018.

The line-up is great. It’s refreshing, and not like any other festival that’s taken place in Ireland in recent years.

There’s also a whole host of excellent homegrown talent, and we have made it easy for you by outlining exactly which Irish acts you should see in Marlay Park.

But it’s not just the Irish that are being represented. Some of the biggest names in the music industry will be in attendance, so we’ve also compiled a list of the must-see artists performing this weekend.

Before you prepare yourself for the weekend of madness that’s in store, first you should take a look at all of the items that are banned from the event.

Some are obvious, some… not so much.

Prohibited items: 

  • Large bags. Only small bags measuring no bigger than 8.27 inches will be allowed in (get the rulers out lads)
  • Fold-up chairs
  • Shooting sticks
  • Umbrellas
  • Selfie sticks
  • Flares
  • Fireworks
  • Laser pens
  • Megaphones
  • Air horns
  • Aerosols
  • Spray cans
  • Smoke & gas canisters
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Glass
  • Drones
  • Chinese lanterns
  • Sounds systems
  • Unofficial tabards
  • Hi-vis clothing
  • Unidentifiable substances
  • Legal highs
  • Herbal highs
  • Anything that can be perceived as a weapon, or which could cause danger or disruption to any other persons at the event
  • Professional cameras
  • Recording equipment
  • Go Pros

It has also been stressed that there will be no cloakroom or storage facilities on site, so anything you bring in with you, you better be prepared to carry it around for the weekend.

So if you try to sneak in a Chinese lantern and you get caught, don’t come crying to us…

You’ve been warned.

So now we’ve told you which Irish acts you should see, which superstars you should see, what you can’t bring in, and how to find your way around the place.

The rest is up to you…
