The weekend is finally here and Longitude kicks off this afternoon, happy Friday to us!

If you're planning on heading to Marlay Park over the next few days, Met Éireann has issued a warning that you might want to take heed of.

Temperatures are set to rise to 24 degrees over the weekend and music fans have been warned to stock up on the sun cream as the burn index will be high.

 "Gig-goers should definitely bring sun tan lotion as we believe the sunburn index will be high. Tomorrow will be muggy and close at Longitude. It will be fairly fine into the evening.

"Sunday will be a warm, dry sunny day, maybe not as warm but a bright, fresh day all the same.”

People are also being advised to stay hydrated over the course of the festival and to familiarise themselves with the new safety measures being implemented.
