If you are Three Mobile Network customer, you have the privilege of pre-sale tickets, which go up on sale December 6th at 10 am, 24 hours before general release. These tickets can be found on Three’s website.
Excitement levels remain high as tensions rise regarding the performances. Fans are looking forward to see what Future and Juice WRLD have to offer after releasing a joint album mid-October, titled ‘World On Drugs’. Flohio is a female which we should keep a lookout for, despite being at the beginning of her career, she is making bigger moves than the majority of the artists that are out right now.
Longitude is well-known for its immaculate hip-hop lineups each year. The 2018 line up included the likes of Migos, Travis Scott, Solange, and J-Cole. The year before Dublin welcomed Skepta and Mac Miller to their stage. Whether or not this year’s line up will be as strong is yet to be revealed, however, as it stands right now the 2019 line up is a strong contender.
The full line-up alongside the day tickets will become available at the start of the new year.
