A festival insider said: “This is probably the biggest Longitude ever. We’re slightly bigger than last year. We’re delighted that the forecast is dry and so warm.”

Although the weekend is set to be a fun and memorable experience jam packed with music, the festival has created a number of rules that festival goers should take note of before arriving at Marlay Park:

  •  Backpacks are completely banned and there are no cloakroom or storage facilities at the festival.
  • Any item that is considered a weapon by security will be confiscated.
  • There will be a strict no alcohol policy on all public transport and private buses travelling to Longitude.
  • Promoters are warning: “not to arrive at the event intoxicated as they will not be permitted entry”.
  • Fans of the festival will need to give themselves plenty of time to get into the event due to the various festival entry procedures, ticket checks and searches.
  • There will be no re-admission for single day ticket holders.

Promoters are recommending festival goers download the Longitude app to get the full details for this weekend.
