We did not expect this.
Earlier on today we found out that Mumford & Sons would be headlining the Sunday of Longitude.
Just when we thought they couldn't top that, they've announced the Saturday headliner and it's HUGE.
None other than the Weeknd will be playing the Marlay Park festival on Saturday, July 15th.
Excuse us while we squeal with excitement.

The headliner for Friday has yet to be confirmed but an official announcement will be made next week.
