What to know before you head to Longitude.
If you’re gearing up for Longitude this weekend, you’d best check out the MCD’s announcement for what you need to know.
As has become the norm, large bags and backpacks will not be allowed in, and small bags will have to be checked at the entrance prior to entering. While we’re at it, best to leave your fold up chairs, umbrellas, selfie sticks, Chinese lanterns, animals, and alcohol at home too, according to the MCD. There will also be a strict no Alcohol Policy implemented on all public transport and private buses travelling to the venue, as well.
