Heading to see Calvin Harris or Travis Scott this weekend? Here’s what you need to know.

The organisers behind the summer Marlay Park gigs are getting on top of things as they have released important information on their upcoming festival, Longitude.

The two-day event is full of great acts including head-liners Calvin Harris on Saturday and Travis Scott on Sunday, as well as Ice Spice, Jazzy, Lil Uzi Vert, Anne-Marie, Joel Corry, and Joey Bada$$.

If you’re heading to Marlay Park for Longitude this weekend, here’s everything you need to know ahead of time.

Standing Events

Due to increased traffic and security measures attendees are advised to be at the venue in sufficient time.

No overnight or early queuing is permitted. Please respect local residents and other park users by not engaging in anti-social behaviour.

If you leave Marlay Park at any point during the festival, re-admittance will not be allowed.

Safety

No alcohol or drinks are permitted to be brought into the venue with the exception of water and soft drinks in sealed plastic bottles up to 500ml. Empty reusable plastic bottles are permitted into the venue. There are water drinking points onsite.

No backpacks, large handbags, bags over A4 size, garden furniture, deckchairs, fold up chairs or shooting sticks, umbrellas, selfie sticks, flares/fireworks, laser pens, megaphone/air horns, aerosols, spray cans, smoke & gas canisters, nitrous oxide & any associated equipment, glass, drones’, professional cameras with a detachable lens, video cameras, audio recording devices. Items left unattended will be removed and disposed of accordingly. You can find the full list of prohibited items on the official MCD website.

Please move slowly and quietly when exiting the concert site. Please co-operate with stewards and Gardaí and follow any loudspeaker announcements.

There may be strobe lighting, lasers and pyrotechnics used at these events.

Age Policy

Any under 16s attending any of these events must be in the presence of an adult at all times.

Strict age monitoring will be in place at all entrances. Unaccompanied under 16s will be refused entry without refund.

Weather

As the forecast is ever-changeable, we recommend keeping an eye on any updates as the week progresses. Umbrellas are not permitted into Marlay Park, so if rain is on the way, we recommend you taking a rain poncho along with you (and if you’re worried about not getting to show off your cool outfit, you can grab clear ones from Flying Tiger).

Wellie boots may also be the play; I speak from experience when I say that Marlay is prone to get mucky very quickly in wet weather, so don’t wear shoes you’d be devastated getting destroyed.

Transport

There are several transport options if you’re heading to Longitude in Marlay Park. If you are driving, it is important to note there is limited parking on-site, and it must be booked in advance.

Parking tickets will cost €25 per car. The car park entrance is located on College Road and is accessed via Whitechurch Road. Only attendees who have pre-booked parking for Marlay Park will be permitted entry into the car park. Tickets for the Marlay Park car park can be purchased via online.

Illegally parked cars will face possible clamping or towing.

The closest Luas stop is Dundrum on the Green Line and there will be a shuttle bus operating from there to Stonemasons Way near the park. Tickets can be purchased for the shuttle bus online.

The recommended drop off and collection point is in the Supervalu car park on Ballinteer Avenue. Attendees getting picked up by family and friends following the event are advised that road closures are in place on the roads surrounding Marlay Park.

Following the events, a passenger pick up point will be facilitated on the Brehonfield Road. Taxis cannot be guaranteed however.
