Two of the biggest outdoor gigs of the summer take place this Friday and Saturday when Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' tour hits Dublin.

If you're planning to head to Croke Park for either (or maybe both!) night, you'll find the information below handy - from stage times to weather reports to transport, we've got you covered.


It's still a few days out, so this could all change - but there is a risk of showers on both days according to Accuweather (below), so make sure you bring a rainproof jacket. says that Friday will see "showery rain will become widespread during the afternoon and early evening. Highs of just 14 to 17 C., in moderate to fresh southwest winds. Rain in all areas for a time overnight, but dry by dawn", while Saturday will see "a few light showers, but most places dry, with sunny spells at times" and highs of 16 to 18 C.


There are two support acts - Charli XCX and Camila Cabello - and both are worth getting in for. Organisers have not announced what time Ms. Swift herself will be on at, but we're guessing that it will be certainly no later than 8.30pm and possibly even as early as 8pm, if Cabello does a half-hour set - so make sure you're in the stadium and situated well before that.

DOORS: 5.45pm
Charli XCX: 6.30pm
Camila Cabello: 7.15pm

There is NO QUEUING allowed prior to gates opening or overnight, as Croke Park is a residential area. If patrons do turn up they will be turned away at restricted area points around the Stadium.
