Dublin alternative-rock act Otherkin have been announced as the winners of a recent battle of the bands for a place on the Longitude 2014 line-up.
It has been a stellar couple of weeks for the four-piece with the group recently being confirmed as one of the ten acts to win 2fm & OXFAM’s Play the Picnic competition (read the full story here).
Continuing with this impressive momentum, Otherkin have now been added to yet another seminal Irish music festival line-up, Longitude, after fending off stiff competition from Franko Franko, Bitch Falcon and Val Normal in Whelan’s last weekend. The band will now play the Whelan’s 25 stage in Marlay Park this Sunday July 20th.
Otherkin will join an exciting line-up of artists that includes Massive Attack, the Afghan Whigs, Haim, Chvrches, Tvvins, Le Galaxies, Ben Howard, Bastille, the 1975 and O Emperor.
Longitude 2014 will run from Friday, July 18th – Sunday, July 20th in Dublin’s Marlay Park. Day tickets are priced at €59.50. For more information visit ticketmaster.ie. See here for the full list of artists performing and day-to-day schedule.
