Longitude is making its highly-anticipated return to Marlay Park this summer from Friday July 2nd to Sunday July 4th 2021.
Longitude have announced that in 2021, Kendrick Lamar will headline the Friday night of the fabled Irish hip-hop festival. Despite a relatively quiet last couple of years, Lamar is indisputably the most acclaimed artist of his generation, Kendrick Lamar has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him.
On Saturday July 3rd, Tyler, The Creator will lead the line-up. The rapper and producer surfaced as a founding member of Odd Future, an outlandish alternative rap crew that gradually permeated the mainstream as it began a multitude of related projects. His most recent album, Igor, has been met with universal critical acclaim.
On Sunday night, A$AP Rocky will close the festival. His debut album, Long.Live.A$AP, landed in 2013 and featured the single "Goldie." The album A.L.L.A. (At Long Last A$AP) followed in 2015 and debuted at number one. His third solo album, Testing, arrived in May 2018, opening at #4 on the Billboard 200.
Longitude also announced that joining Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator, and A$AP Rocky will be Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, AJ Tracey, Aitch, Megan Thee Stallion, Playboi Carti, Doja Cat, Trippie Redd, Ski Mask the Slump God, Mabel, Lil Tjay, NLE Choppa, Polo G, Jack Harlow, iann dior, Jay1, KSI, Rod Wave, Ivorian Doll and Offica.
