Pictures posted to social media by concertgoers indicated crowding at the barriers, with delays of up to an hour. If you are heading to the Longitude festival over the weekend then you'll need to take note of a Met Eireann warning that is advising revellers of increasing temperatures and a high sunburn index.

Day two of Longitude 2017 kicks off this afternoon with 35,000 people preparing to descend on Dublin's Marlay Park.

A spokesperson for festival organiser MCD said that the increased security at the gig meant that it was taking longer for people to get into the venue and urged fans to allow plenty of additional time when travelling and entering the venue. We had encouraged people to arrive early and they heeded the encouragement to a greater level than anticipated making that first hour hard and I owe those caught up in it an apology.
