Revellers and celebrities alike flock to Phoenix Park for tonight's musical offering.

Tonight's Mumford & Sons show sees many people flock to the Phoenix Park this evening, among them a number of Irish rugby players including Jonny Sexton, Jamie Heaslip and Rob Kearney.

Jonny's new wife Laura Priestly accompanied her husband to watch the English folk rock band play.

According to an insider, many of the Irish rugby team have developed a friendship with Mumford & Sons after performing for them at a Six Nations game.

Oscar nominated actress Carey Mulligan also jetted into Dublin to see her husband Marcus Mumford perform at the Phoenix Park.

The Great Gatsby star looked every inch the effortless festival fashionista with wavy, shoulder length hair, a maxi skirt and flowing blouse.

Aside from her team of security personnel, there were otherwise no airs or graces about the actress. She joined a host of celebrities at the VIP area of the gig.

"I've been to all of the gigs this week at the Phoenix Park and Mumford is by far the busiest," said Zeila Oliveria from Sao Paolo, Brazil. 

One of the support acts of the night will be English singer-songwriter Ben Howard but he's proven quite popular among the crowd. "It's all about Ben Howard for me," said Dublin-based Laura Bond.

But some of the crowd are simply out in the Park for the sunshine and a bit of fun, like Rory Dunne and Geoff Ryan from Castleknock.

"We're just here for the craic and the good weather!" they said.
