It would appear that MCD are planning a new music festival called Longitude for July 2013 to run on the same weekend as the Latitude festival in the UK. We understand that offers for acts for the festival have already been made and here’s an indication that a website may be also on the way. Per sources we’ve spoken to today, mooted venues include Fairyhouse Racecourse, Co Meath and Belvedere House, Co Westmeath (which was home to Hi-Fi, MCD’s last attempt to do a boutique festival back in 2006). As previously predicted by OTR, there is also further speculation about a two-day EDM festival at Punchestown in August. More info to come.
