Longitude kicks off a weekend of sun, glitter and glamour for 120,000 fans
Sun cream, fisherman hats and glitter hair spray were the order of the day as the Longitude music festival kicked off.
More than 120,000 people are expected to attend the three-day music event in Dublin's Marley Park.
The day started early for one group of young women who had been awake since 5am.
"At 7.15 this morning we had to get a train, which was way overbooked, so there was no seats for anyone but it was okay, because it's our first Longitude experience," Éabha McArdle said.
"We've three days ahead of us...we have to go for three days, but we're nearby in Rathfarnham, so it's handy.
"It's all about Stormzy and Mumford and Sons," she added.
Some of the festival-goers were novices and looking forward to making the most of the weekend.
"This is my first one, I was too shy and quiet but I've come out of my shell," Nadine Boylan (23) from Ballyfermot said.
"Who did I come here for? Picture This, definitely. I'm in work in the morning, I'm nine to five," she added apprehensively.
TV star Vogue Williams and Bláithnaid Treacy were among the crowd.
