Longitude also released a statement letting attendants know about the best way to travel to the festival.
Gates are set to open at 1.30pm each day. Organisers have asked the public not to queue up prior to the entry time, so the surrounding residential areas will not be crowded.
Public transport is strongly encouraged and it is advised to plan your journey in advance, giving yourself about 2 hours of travel time to and from the venue. Plan your route in advance and keep an eye on the AA road watch for reports on traffic, road works, delays, etc. that may occur on your route.
Three Dublin Bus routes will drop you outside Marlay Park gates: the 16, the 116 and the 161.
Those driving to Marley Park are asked to expect heavy delays. The best routes would be from coming from M50- Exit the m50 at junction 12 interchange, signpost R113 Knocklyon/Firhouse. Follow Scholarstown Road, Ballyboden Way, Taylors Lane, turn right onto Whitechurch road and then left onto College Road. Entrance to the car park is off college road. Please note that there is limited parking available in Marlay Park. Car parks will open 1 hour prior to the gate opening time on your ticket.
Do not attempt to park illegally in areas surrounding Marlay Park, in local estates or outside local residences. Parking enforcement rules will be in operation and you vehicle will be clamped or towed.
Alternatively, you can travel by shuttle bus.
