No strangers to these shores, the Ohio band released their latest album ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ on the back of a twenty-two month tour promoting their previous LP ‘High Violet’. ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ is The National's sixth album, and has been released to huge critical and commercial success, cemented by the band's celebrated live show.

Joining our headliners are Grammy nominated producer Jamie XX, Folk singer Father John Misty who released his globally acclaimed second record I Love You, Honeybear last year, electro pop trio Chvrches making a welcome return to the Marlay Park weekender, hip hop star Tyler, The Creator, Irish electronica singer Róisín Murphy, New York chef turned rapper Action Bronson, Courtney Barnett, who is nominated for Best International Female Artist at this years Brit Awards and A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg.

It annoys me that they only put days for the headliners.
A couple of acts I like and would be interested in seeing but not too fussed if I decide not to go. It all depends on how the days work out.

The Sunday lineup is looking excellent now. It should get the thumped punch of approval

I could easily have a good time at that Sunday line up. Haven't been tempted by anything in Marlay Park in over a decade.

I'd like to see Kendrick and Roisín Murphy but not gonna bother.

I wonder is Kendrick's live band any better than the faceless session lads he had a few years back? I assume Thundercat and Kamasi Washington don't back him up live.

Up until I started hearing ads for this on the radio I have spent my life believing it was pronounced "longtitdude".

How they must have been secretly laughing at me in the boat club while I told them of my global adventures.

I have never heard a Kendrick Lamaar song in my life. The Friday and Saturday line ups are completely alien to me tbh. But I could make it from Rusangano Family to Roisin Murphy on sunday with a good run, 90 minutes between Christine and the Queens and Kurt Vile to eat food and take selfies.

Didn't need the temptation. No competition tickets going @pete ?

yeah, same, 1-day tickets went on sale today for the sunday. Tempted, but didn't go for it in the end.

tbh, I'd be paying 65 quid to see Courtney Barnett and whatever else I know up front isn't terrible.

Which doesn't leave a whole lot. At least Roisin Murphy clashes with the National so people have something else to do than be bored shitless by them.
