Festival Mixtape: Longitude 2016


Set to return to Dublin’s Marlay Park this weekend, the three-day line-up for this year’s Longitude is easily one of the strongest of the Irish summer festival calendar.

Headlined by Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer and The National – as well as featuring the likes of Jamie xx, Father John Misty (pictured), Run The Jewels, Laura Mvula, Courtney Barnett, Vic Mensa and Kurt Vile & The Violators – organisers have struck a keen balance with both genre and the ratio between homegrown artists and much bigger acts.

Ahead of what’s set to be yet another memorable weekend for the MCD-run festival, stream our 30 track Longitude 2016 Festival Mixtape via Spotify – and check out the festival full line-up – below.
