With the pre-sale kicking off... It's time for a fresh thread (358 pages of replies on the 2019 thread )
Let's kick things off with the statement from ATN:
All Together Now 2019
As the dust settles we look back on and take stock of our second chapter. Firstly, the All Together Now team would like to say we are absolutely and fully committed to making sure that the issues that arose this year’s festival are not repeated. We have taken in every comment, every email and are carefully taking stock of where we need to improve. We have met and are working closely with An Garda Siochana and our other partner agencies to ensure that the traffic experienced travelling to this year’s festival does not happen again. We aim for the highest standards and plan to deliver the best festival experience possible. We are deeply disappointed that some areas of this years All Together Now fell short of expectations, and for this, we are truly sorry.
We have been heartened by the All Together Now community that has taken the time to share their experience with us. Although there were negatives, which we have to and will address and improve for our third edition, there were some amazing and memorable moments. You were respectful of each other, of the beautiful landscape and all our wonderful performers. You enjoyed feasts of food, bespoke cocktails, hidden stages, and hot tubs and a host of different and quirky gems. The Arcadia, Afterburner shot its flames into the night sky, whilst Tigre’s 20 foot wooden Redwood Stag installation looked on down the Road To Nowhere toward the illuminated Curraghmore House. Brunch on the Bandstand with Blindboy had you captivated on Sunday afternoon, overlooked by Tigre’s new wooden Lion. Memorable music moments from Patti Smith to The Murder Capital, The National to Loyle Carner, even the sideways rain couldn’t stop you enjoying The Wailers and Sing Along Social. Our youngest festival-goers enjoyed the dedicated kids’ space, Kids Together, where face painters and performers enthralled both parents and kids alike - the little ones even danced in the rain as George Fitzgerald took over the annual Arcadia Kids Rave.
We now have the privilege & responsibility of getting back to work on the third edition of All Together Now, which will again take place on the Bank Holiday Weekend - July 31 - August 2nd 2020.
Festival Capacity: We can confirm that our capacity will not increase next year, as we endeavour to improve the overall experience for our loyal audience. All Together Now will remain again Strictly Over 21s. Children between the ages of 12 and under can attend free of charge, accompanied by a parent with a family ticket.
