This year's Longitude Festival is shaping up nicely with Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar headlining on Friday, Major Lazer topping the bill on Saturday and The National closing the festival on Sunday.

Kendrick Lamar released his critically acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly last year and it debuted at the top of the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and has received 11 nominations at this year's Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Rap Album.
