The Longitude festival is the main event taking place every summer at Marlay Park. This festival is a gig for the young people, the generation Z-ers born in and around 2000. It features the hippest and biggest international names on Friday and Saturday, while Sunday is reserved for the oldies. The line-up includes hip-hop, rap and R&B, like J Cole, Travis Scott, Solange, Cardi B and Princess Nokia.
