Marley Park Concert Update

We received formal notification today that the licence to hold the concerts has been approved for 8th of July, 9th of July and the Longitude Festival 15th – 17th.

The conditions to the planning are available here: concert_planning_approval

As per previous years, we will also be engaging the relevant parties to ensure there is minimum disruption to the estate. The residents association will continue to engage with the relevant parties with a view to having a clear strategy for emergency access to the estate in either the event management or traffic plan.

On the concerns that were raised by MGRA in relation to emergency access to the estate during the exits of the concerts,
the following statement has been clarified in the Traffic Management Plan. “Emergency Services” covers the normal ones and should the ESB or Gas Networks Ireland need to enter they will also be accommodated.

Access for Emergency Services to all areas will be maintained during the periods of Road Closures. In the event that an emergency occurs an escort team, consisting of trained Garda Motorcyclists, will be detailed to complete this escort. This is a facility that would not be available on a normal basis and will result in a more timely response for access and egress to Emergency Services personnel and vehicles.

Also stated is that as per previous years all non-emergency access requests during the road closures will be evaluated on a case by case basis and facilitated if possible, with public safety in mind.

The line up for the concerts is as follows:

Friday 8th of June  – Kodaline, Walking on Cars 16:30

Saturday 9th of June – The Stone Roses, Soak, Rodrigo y Gabriela opening  17:30

Longitude Festival  – Friday 15th (Kendrick Lamar), Saturday 16th (Major Lazer), Sunday 17th (The National)
