Just out from longitude. Queues this afternoon were disgraceful and put several people in danger!— Emma Christmas (@madaemz) July 14, 2017
@longitude lads get the queue at the entrance sorted, WAY to packed and groups pushing and 3 people fainted in the space of 10 mins.— Emma Mulligan (@Boyler1976) July 14, 2017
"My partner held up one teen 15 years old who kept fainting and managed to get her to safety," said one fan who contacted us.
"We actually feared for our lives… [I'm] not sure I will ever be the same again after this experience."
Tonight's headline guest is The Weekend with support from Skepta and Mac Miller.
No backpacks or large bags will be allowed into the arena at Marlay Park and there are no cloakroom facilities.
