From the people who have brought us the Forbidden Fruit Festival, Carl Cox in Ballinlough, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, (which sold out rapidly), POD.ie presents to us Ireland's newest festival. The festival, All Together Now, is coming to us on the August Bank Holiday. Set in the beautiful, picturesque Curraghmore Estate, Portlaw, Co.Waterford. The promotion company teased this festival with little detail in early January but they have released more info and we couldn't be more excited.
The first thing to note about this festival is the grounds it takes place. 3,000 acres of picturesque beauty. Filled to the brim with culture and history, it is the perfect setting for this festival which isn't solely focused on music alone. All Together Now seems to be focusing on showcasing a spectrum of creative arts which suits the unique venue of this festival perfectly.
This August Bank Holiday Weekend -3/4/5 … All Together Now will see its debut, its maiden voyage...a festival for like-minded people, music lovers, passionate performers, families, artists, musicians, creators, rebels, and refugees of a changing festival landscape…
We will bring you a weekend of freedom and escapism through music, spoken word, comedy, theatre, debate, art and workshops. Beautiful feasts of food, bespoke cocktails, can be enjoyed within this dramatic and scenic landscape. There will be fun across 10 stages including an alfresco crystal ballroom, Spiegeltent and various different hidden quirky gems....

The festival will be over 21s and one of the only festivals in the country which is. The grounds is surrounded by a 12 mile long stone wall and it will hold a whopping 10,000. It will be a 3 day camping festival taking place on the August bank holiday weekend. The festival puts a massive emphasis on the family aspect, there will be a designated children's area and children between the ages of 2 and 12 will go free when accompanied by an adult carrying a family ticket.
Some of the lineup has been announced already which we are very excited about and this is only the first wave. By the looks of it, this festival is going to be brilliantly unique.
