Long' hot summer
THE sun shone and the stars came out at the Longitude festival, where over 100,000 music lovers have been lapping up the entertainment at Dublin’s Marlay Park this weekend.
Top celebrities included Sunday World columnist Vogue Williams who was a roving reporter streamling live on Facebook all the antics from the Desperados House Party area.
Meanwhile, Rosanna Davison and hubby Wes Quirke were spotted enjoying the sounds at the 3Live experience with 2fm star Eoghan McDermott.
Another former Miss Ireland, Holly Carpenter, mingled with the revellers yesterday in the build up to last night’s performance by The Coronas, featuring her boyfriend Danny O’Reilly.
Models Roz Lipsett and Madeleine Mulqueen were also seen enjoying the entertainment at the Heineken Sound Atlas area over the weekend.
With red-hot acts like Kendrick Lamar, Chvrches, Major Lazer, Run The Jewels, The National and Jamie XX on the bill, Longitude has been a huge success with the fans, including Conor Dunne (16) from Celebridge who was with pals, David Gray and Kelly and Lucy Pointer. “It’s ‘lit’...just class...we’re lovin’ it,” he told the Sunday World.
Siobhan O’Riordan was with a gang of 35 friends who made the trip from Cork. “We came to see Kendrick Lamar,” Siobhan said of the American star who topped the bill on Friday night. “He’s an absolute ‘banger’, we love him.”
American indie rockers The National will close the event tonight in front of a full house at the Dublin southside venue.
