Longitude Festival – Stage Map and Public Safety Info

For those of you heading to this weekend’s Longitude Festival, MCD have released stage maps and general need-to-know stuff to ensure an easy passage in and out of the site. Obviously, as I’m sure a certain country and western superstar will attest, all details are subject to change so keep an eye on, the festival website and MCD’s own website for any updates.

Gates open at 1.30pm and the first act will be on at 2pm.

Traffic delays are inevitable please allow plenty of additional travel time – MCD recommend at least an extra 2 hours.

No under-16 year olds will admitted unless accompanied by an adult over 18. ID will be required.

The provided shuttle bus is the most direct form of transport to the concert – as the drop off point is directly outside the venue. The shuttle bus service will operate for all concerts from Custom House Quay in the city centre direct to Marlay Park. Please note this is a return service only. You must book in advance with priority given to customers who have pre booked online.

Fare: €10 return. €9 when booked online in advance. Online Booking will close at 10:00am on the day of each concert

Shuttle operating times are as below:

Customs House Quay to Marlay Park: 13:00, 13:30, 14.00, 14:30, 15:00, 16:00, 17:00,18:00

A previously advertised 19:00 shuttle service will not be operating for any evening

Marlay Park to Customs House Quay: 21:00 – 00:30 – buses will depart as they fill.

Please note that regular Dublin Bus services will be limited, augmented and reshuffled so check the Dublin Bus website for details.

Neither the festival nor the promoters will organise any private coaches and it is advised that persons travelling by private coach agree with the driver where to collect from after the concerts. There is no private-hire coach parking on-site and coaches will not be able to pick up from Grange Road or College Road car park after the event.

The closest Luas stations are Ballaly and Dundrum. It is approx. a 30minute walk to the concert site. For more details see the Luas website.

A taxi & pick up service will be facilitated on Stonemason’s Way, at the junction with Grange Rd to its junction with Barton Rd East. Please note this is the only designated pick-up point for this event.

Limited parking will be available at Marlay Park… it’s possibly best not to use this option unless you can guarantee parking elsewhere should the official site fills up. Traffic and parking delays are inevitable you are strongly advised to use public transport or carpool. Please plan your journey in advance and allow plenty of extra travel time to and from the venue.

Car Parks will open at 12.30 each day.
