The eagerly awaited line-up for Longitude has finally dropped, and we're ridiculously excited about it already.

You can expect to see Phoenix and Vampire Weekend headline on Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th of July, with Karftwerk promising a 3D spectacular on the Sunday to close the show on the 21st in Marlay Park.

Fans will also be eager to see other huge acts like Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Hot Chip perform across three stages, as well as Villagers and Django Django amongst a whole host of acts.

Other acts include the fantastic Modest Mouse, Ireland's own Kodaline who are an act that are definitely on the rise, and Jake Bugg, the teenage singer song-writer who's been described as the antidote to X-Factor.

On this week’s The Capital B;
