We're thrilled to present our brand new issue of Hot Press – featuring a special flip-cover celebrating two of the most hotly anticipated events of the summer: Longitude and Elvis!
As he gets ready to storm Longitude with Denise Chaila and God Knows, Narolane production guru MuRli is this month's front cover star. He talks to Stuart Clark about friendship, faith, racism, Ed Sheeran, his Togolese upbringing, pinch-me moments, and putting Limerick on the hip-hop map.
Plus, he kicks off our extensive Longitude Special by picking the acts he can't wait to see in Marlay Park...
Our in-depth coverage of the festival also includes interviews with Offica, Kojaque, Belters Only, Becky Hill, KhakiKid and EFÉ.
On the flip-cover meanwhile, director Baz Luhrmann and star Austin Butler talk to Roe McDermott about bringing the extraordinary life of a 20th century icon to the big screen with Elvis.
Sinn Féin are on a high – legal of course – in the wake of the Party’s historic poll-topping victory in the Northern Ireland local elections, and soaring poll ratings south of the border. Against that backdrop, we visit Leinster House to talk to Eoin Ó Broin, the Sinn Féin spokesperson on housing, for the Hot Press Interview. He discusses how to get houses built fast, making religious orders pay what they owe to the State, the National Maternity Hospital, the rise of the Alliance Party – and the prospect of a border poll.
