Longitude has announced that it’s annual summer festival which usually takes place in Marlay Park is cancelled for a second year in a row.

Breaking the news online, after previously announcing the line up and ticket sales late last year, the festival organisers wrote:

“We are so sorry to the thousands of people who bought tickets to this year’s festival and we are absolutely devastated that, once again, we won’t be able to welcome you all to Marlay Park this Summer.”

This year’s lineup was confirmed to include the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator, A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert, DaBaby, AJ Tracey, Aitch, Megan Thee Stallion and Playboi Carti to name a few, but with the restrictions only slowly beginning to ease this month, the festival confessed that they’re aware that going ahead this summer wouldn’t be feasible.

On the plus side, the festival organisers are not giving up hope, not just yet. Instead, they’re putting all their energy into making sure that 2022 sees the festival’s biggest and best to date coming your way.

“Longitude 2022 will take place July 1st-3rd next summer and rest assured it will be the biggest and best yet.”

Longitude follows in the footsteps of Forbidden Fruit and Body & Soul which too announced that they wouldn’t be going ahead with their summer festivities.

All festivals admitted that they cannot wait to come back next year, which seems very possible compared to last year given the vaccine rollout and time until next summer comes around.

Here’s to us all hopefully dancing in a field in the foreseeable. Bring it on!
