There are just 4 weeks to go until shiny new All Together Now floats itself on the Irish music festival scene.
The new immersive 360 festival will run from 3rd to 5th August in the incredibly beautiful grounds of Curraghmore House, located in Portlaw, Co. Waterford.
With a bill of fare that includes every shade of music, theatre & comedy, a kiddies rave, an Arcadia Spectacular Afterburner, and much more, All Together Now looks set to become the Full Monty of Irish festivals.
Just when we thought Jenny Headen et al couldn’t possibly pack any more into the spectacular setting of the Curraghmore estate, they announce All Curious Minds, a spoken word area that will play host to the likes of British novelist and writer Will Self, renowned beatboxer and comedian Reggie Watts, Madness frontman Suggs and more. To check out the full All Curious Minds line up, click HERE.
If however, you’re only here for the beer and the music, then get you onto our ATN Spotify playlist to check out some of the great and the good from the music world who’ll be treading the stage on the August bank holiday weekend.
Big hitters include Fleet Foxes, Underworld, Roisin Murphy, Mura Masa and First Aid Kit, while the musical stretch reaches right across the musical landscape. Diversity is one of the key facets of the inaugural ATN line-up. It boasts genres across the full spectrum, including the contemporary classico-electro of Nils Frahm, the funk/crossover thrash of Thundercat, the electropop of Kelela and the alt-indie of Isaac Gracie to name but a few.
The ATN18 line up also includes revered music veterans Jimmy Cliff, Chaka Khan and Kevin Rowland, the former Dexy’s Midnight Runners frontman who’ll be hitting the decks for his own DJ set.
In addition to leftfield electro queen Murphy, the other acts flying the Irish flag will be Saint Sister, Talos, AE Mak, Brigid Mae Power, Katie Kim, Jape and the wonderful West Cork Ukulele Orchestra.
All Together Now is a festival in the true 360 sense, providing for every taste, mood and size. With its proper good spread of theatre and comedy, kiddie ents, music and melodrama, ATN18 has got you and yours covered!
