The weather for today looks set to be full of sunny spells in the evening with cloudy spells throughout the day. Tomorrow promises to be a hot and humid day with temperatures expected to rise up to 24 degrees. Sunday is set to be the sunniest day at Marlay.
A Met Eireann spokeswoman told The Sun said: “Gig goers should definitely bring sun tan lotion as we believe the sun burn index will be high".
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.
