The line-up for Longitude has just been released and while it has become Ireland's best-loved festival, it's really pitched a tent firmly on one specific music genre landscape.
The festival returns in 2019 from July 5-7 and the organisers have announced the first round of acts for the show.
They are as follows:
- Chance the Rapper
- A$AP Rocky
- Rae Sremmurd
- Lil Uzi Vert
- Juice WRLD
- Denzel Curry
- Lil Baby
- Sheck Wes
Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 7th at 10am and weekend ticket prices will be €189.50 including booking fee.
There will also be more information about line-ups and their breakdown as well as day ticket information throughout 2019.
While some were absolutely delighted with the line-up so far, a small minority were left scratching their heads about who or what was playing at the festival:
The absolute STATE of that longitude line up ???? only a matter of time till something happens at it and it’ll be shut down for good. It peaked in 2013/2014... its inaugural years. Downhill ever since ???? pic.twitter.com/jQcQewd8G2
