Stage Times

As Croke Park is in a residential area, people have been advised not to queue too early for the concert and be respectful of nearby residents.

Gates open at 5pm, but the first performance doesn’t kick off until 6:45pm.

Charli XCX will be the first performer, and then at 7.25pm Camila Cabello will be on.

Camila will perform until Taylor comes on stage at 8:15pm. Taylor’s performance is set to last just over two hours with a curfew set for 11pm.
