Smartphones and small digital cameras are permitted, but cameras with long or detachable lenses, or recording equipment, are not. GoPros and iPads are also prohibited.
What’s the weather forecast?
Met Éireann is forecasting a sunny but mild evening of about 14 degrees. But as this is an outdoor concert, be sure to dress appropriately for that volatile Irish summer weather we know and love.
