While this year’s festival season might have been a bust, that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about next year’s amazing line-ups, and pray that they actually go ahead.
If you’re a fan of the Irish music festival scene, then you’ll be pleased to know that Longitude have just revealed their first round of acts for next summer’s festival, due to take place between July 2 and July 4, in Marlay Park.
The first headliner announced is acclaimed artist, Kendrick Lamar, who’s due to hit the Longitude stage on Friday night. Kendrick Lamar is one of those rare MC’s who has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him.
Meanwhile, Tyler, The Creator leads the line-up on Saturday, July 3. The rapper and producer surfaced as a founding member of Odd Future, an outlandish alternative rap crew that gradually permeated the mainstream as it began a multitude of related projects.
His most recent album Igor has been met with universal critical acclaim and debuted at No 1 on the US Billboard 200.
Revelers will be pleased to know that A$AP Rocky is back, and will close the festival on Sunday night.
