Longitude 2020

Some massive names in music have been announced for Longitude 2020.

Longitude has established itself as Ireland’s premier hip-hop festival in recent years and based on the early announcements for next year’s festival, it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Kendrick Lamar, J Hus, Aitch, Charli XCX, AJ Tracey, Playboy Carti, Young Thug, A$AP Rocky and DaBaby have all been announced for Longitude 2020.

The announcement, made on Friday morning, also revealed that tickets for the festival will go on sale on Friday 13 December.

The dates for next year’s festival have been confirmed as 3-5 July.

A number of the announced acts have already played the festival, including Kendrick Lamar, J Hus and Tyler the Creator, but it will be a first appearance at Longitude for A$AP Rocky, who was due to headline in 2019.

The rapper was arrested in Sweden the day before he was due to perform, which ultimately resulted in Donald Trump having to intervene.

Last year’s festival saw Cardi B and Stormzy play the main stage.
