Pictures posted to social media by concertgoers indicated crowding at the barriers, with delays of up to an hour.

Suntan lotion might be all you'll be carrying into the venue as the festival has issued some guidlines on what kind of bags will be allowed into the Marley Park site.

Organisers have this morning apologised for what happened but said they had urged those attending to arrive as early as possible.

Melvin Benn, managing director of Festival Republic, tweeted yesterday that the "uncomfortable start" was "not what I wanted". "We had encouraged people to arrive early and they headed (sic) the encouragement to a greater level than anticipated making that first hour hard and I owe those caught up ini it an apology". On the Longitude website it says: "to avoid lengthy queues, we strongly advise that you do not bring a bag". As you would anticipate, my teams have worked throughout the night to improve the entry for today and tomorrow so everyone can enjoy Longitude at its best.

Here's the full policy "Large bags and backpacks will not be allowed in to the festival, only small bags measuring no bigger than A4 (8.27in/21cm x 11.7in/29.7cm) will be permitted into the event".

The Weeknd will be headlining tonight.
