Longitude was a welcome addition to last year's festival schedule. The upstart festival was one of the summer's success stories, with a slew of excellent bands playing in a VERY convenient location (convenient for us Dubs, anyway), all punctuated with some of the best damn weather we've witnessed in recent memory. So we're all looking forward to round two, right?
The initial line-up announcement was served a month ago, promising good times from the likes of James Vincent McMorrow, Disclosure, Ben Howard, Bombay Bicycle Club and George Ezra among others and now news has filtered through to us that Massive Attack, Rudimental, The 1975, Banks, Parquet Courts, Krytal Klear, O Emperor, Eagulls, Ry X, Say Lou Lou, Son Lux, Josef Salvat and Samaris. Not bad at all, we're sure you'll agree.
What's that? You want a day-by-day breakdown? Here goes:
Friday: Ben Howard, Bastille, Bombay Bicycle Club, Icona Pop and George Ezra
Saturday: Disclosure, Haim, Chvrches, The 1975, Sam Smith and Hozier
Sunday: Massive Attack, James Vincent McMorrow, Rudimental, First Aid Kit and Banks
Further announcements, both line-up and otherwise, will be with you soon.
