With the clock counting down to the Rathfarnham spectacular, seven homegrown names have been added to the bill
A clutch of Irish acts have been added to the line-up for Longitude.
The festival, which takes over Marlay Park on July 15-17, is the subject of the special issue of Hot Press on shelves today – and now there's even more reason to make Rathfarnham the place to be over the weekend.
Chart-toppers HamsandwicH (pictured), Limerick hip-hop heroes Rusangano Family, fast-rising Bray trio Wyvern Lingo, the exhilarating We Cut Corners, highly-rated Cork troubadour Brian Deady and Galway producer Daithí all join the bill, with the good DJs of District 8 rounding out the announcements.
They take their place alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar, The National, Major Lazer, Father John Misty and Jamie xx for what should be a weekend to live long in the memory.
