Sad news for festival goers as the Longitude music festival is not going ahead this year.

Longitude had been set to take place from July 2nd to 4th in Dublin's Marlay Park.

Megan Thee Stallion, Kendrick Lamar, and A$AP Rocky were among the acts set to perform at Longitude.

In a statement today (Monday, 10th May), the festival's organisers said that due to COVID-19 restrictions, it had "become clear" they would be unable to host the festival this year.

They released a statement on their social platforms, reading: "We are so sorry to the thousands of people who bought tickets to this year's festival and are absolutely devastated that, once again, we won't be able to welcome you all to Marley Park this summer."

Refunds for Longitude will be processed automatically. They may take up to seven working days to process.

Longitude will now take place during the July bank holiday of next year, with dates of 1st-3rd July in 2022.

The organisers said that it "will be the biggest and best one yet!"

The news comes just a week after Dublin's Fruit Festival was also cancelled.
