13 acts to see at Longitude for a boogie

Throw shapes.

LONGITUDE IS BACK this weekend.

With any luck, the weather will hold and we’ll all able to enjoy some #bangers in Marlay Park without much disturbance.

As well as 3Live having that massive disco ball to dance in, there’ll be some musical acts attending over the weekend with hopes of playing some tunes for you all.

That’s nice of them, isn’t it?

Now, there’s a lot to see and do over the weekend, so we’re here to cut the shite and tell you who you need to prioritise so you can get maximum dancing time in.

Friday

Dua Lipa

giphy (47)

She’s on at 5pm on the Main Stage, so you’d best bloody leg it.

Worth the sprint for the pop gold below.

Wiley

Leg it over to the Heineken stage at 5:45pm for one of the hardest working men in grime.

His new album ‘Godfather’ will be getting the biggest look in, we’d imagine.

Brame & Hamo

Berlin-based house produced Brame & Hamo will be bringing the real groove to Friday’s proceedings.

They’re on at 6pm at the Red Bull stage – stall it!

Stormzy

He played a stomper of a set at Bennicassim last night, so expect much of the same on Friday.

He tends to be talkative during his sets, so who knows – maybe he’ll address the Lukaku mix-up at length?

Only one way to find out! See ye at the Main Stage at 9:30pm.

Saturday

Pusha T

We were all suitably devo when rapper Earl Sweatshirt cancelled.

But if anything, Pusha T is the perfect stand-in, especially ahead of his highly-anticipated ‘King Push’ album.

King Push himself plays the Heineken Stage at 4pm.

Youngr

Youngr is Dario Darnell, a songwriter, producer, instrumentalist, and vocalist who makes eclectic, slightly left-of-center pop.

From his own material, to his reworks of classic tracks from Flight Facilities and Temper Trap you will be shaking and jiving to this guy.

Youngr plays the Whelans stage at 4:45pm.

Stevie G

Some Cork representation at long last!

Stevie G will be hitting the decks at the Red Bull stage 5:45pm on Saturday evening.

Expect R&B, hip-hop, rap and soul – all the good stuff, basically.

Kaytranada

Kaytranada released one of the albums of 2016 with ’99.9%’.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND GO SEE THIS MAN. HE IS AN ELECTRONIC WIZARD.

He’s on at 6:15pm at the Main Stage.

All Tvvins

They’re back for more after last year’s super gorge set. Expect more of the same, with the added bonus of some snazzy album tracks they didn’t play last time.

And they’re Irish! Love the lads.

All Tvvins play the Heinken Stage on Saturday at 8pm.

The Weeknd

The last time poor Abel played here, he was supporting a Mr ‘Drizzy’ Drake at the 3Arena, and sure no one gave a shite about him.

NOT ANYMORE THOUGH.

Two enormous albums and a slew of singles under his belt, the moody R&B crooner is back with a vengeance.

It helps that his vocals are stunning too.

The Weeknd headlines the Main Stage, with his set kicking off at 9:30pm.

Sunday

Jorja Smith

She’s being hailed as the UK’s soulful answer to Rihanna, but to compare to any other artist is doing her a disservice.

Expect seriously sultry vocals and island beats – and you can smug about saying you saw her before she got huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.

Jorjas’s on at 4pm at the Heineken Stage.

Milky Chance

You’ll know Stolen Dance a mile off because it was everywhere upon it’s release, but they’ve some other absolute treasures too.

Throw new album ‘Blossom’ on shuffle before the gig and you’re sorted.

Milky Chance are on the Main Stage at 4:30pm on Sunday.

Glass Animals

After Milky Chance, you can hold tight for these lads – it’s rock, but not as you know it.

Expect psychedelia and whispery vocals and a LOT of fun.

They’re on at 5:45PM.

Boogie on lads.
