If you were attending Longitude Festival yesterday, chances are you probably had some queues to contend with.

In fact, some reports from those on the ground painted quite a picture of what went down yesterday.




Following yesterday's delays, Longitude Festival's organisers, Festival Republic, issued an apology on Twitter.

"The opening hour of yesterday's entry was not what I wanted," said Melvin Benn, Festival Republic's managing director. "We had encouraged people to arrive early and they headed (sic) the encouragement to a greater level than anticipated making that first hour difficult and I owe those caught up ini it an apology."

"However, every single person caught up in the shock of the uncomfortable start was able to continue to the concert and enjoy the day despite that. As you would anticipate, my teams have worked throughout the night to improve the entry for today and tomorrow everyone can enjoy Longitude at its best."

The Weeknd headlines today's lineup, with Kaytranada, Mac Miller and Skepta all set to take to the stage later tonight.
