MCD today released the first wave of acts due to play Longitude at Marley Park on July 13th to 15th.

One of the highlights of the Summer Festival season the three days also have one of the biggest collections of sponsors with 3, Red Bull, Bacardi and Heineken all on board for 2018.

This is the sixth year of the Festival which plays to a daily audience of around 20,000 and which in the past has featured headline acts including Hozier, Kraftwerk, Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers and Stormzy.

J Cole will headline the Friday night with Travis Scott on Saturday and Grammy Award winner Solange topping the bill on Sunday.

This year’s concert will present an interesting logistics challenge with the same venue playing host to Bruno Mars on Thursday 12th July.

Over the coming months, Entertainment for Business will be talking with some of the key players in the concert and festival scene to look under the covers at what goes into making a brilliant event.

Tickets priced from €69.50 for one day go on sale from Friday, February 16th.
