Warm welcome at Longitude as festival acts to cut queues
The second day of Longitude went with a bang yesterday, with an estimated 20,000 people flocking to Dublin's Marlay Park for the fifth year of the festival.
Crop tops, bum-skimming shorts and fishnet tights were the order of the day for more than nine hours of music, food and fun in the sun.
However, the day began with organisers issuing an apology after festival-goers had complained about delays and queues at entrances on the opening day of the festival.
"The opening hour of Friday's entry was not what I wanted," said Festival Republic's Melvin Benn yesterday.
"We had encouraged people to arrive early and they heeded the encouragement to a greater level than anticipated, making that first hour difficult. I owe those caught up in it an apology."
Yesterday's headliners, the Weeknd, drew crowds for the last performance of the day on the main stage last night, while Skepta, Mac Miller and All Tvvins were among acts that entertained fans throughout the day.
The non-camping festival will wrap up today, with folk rock band Mumford & Sons closing on the main stage.
