Any ideas what this is about?

Meh... A lot of words and still no mention of a line-up.

Over 21's festival but children between 2-12 are permitted FOC. (That's my two teenagers ruled out anyway, so we won't be going).

Tickets go on sale next week...

New Update from the event organisers:

"To the west of the Comeragh Mountains and east of the River Suir sits a richly verdant vale of drama, beauty, history, scale and limitless possibilities for the imagination.
We found we explored, we were enchanted and we were inspired. A setting so fruitful, so beautiful, with boundless limitations and incredible history, this world of 3000 acres of Curraghmore Estate called for a festival to be created and curated on its richful plain. Lakes, trees, fields, fountains, forests, lawns, lanes, shell house, stone circles, crystals, courtyards, streams....bring a heightened and unforgettable state of emotion, awe, and inspiration. We set out on this journey to respect the landscape’s drama, embrace its beauty, honour the past but collaborate and create a new future on Ireland’s largest and most stunning private estate. It challenges & excites us.
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 creative ideas encompassing this festival have been inspired by people, from Spraoi in Waterford, to Glastonbury, to as far as Lighting In The Bottle in California and Rainbow Serpent in Australia.
A key part of our creative work is to create a festival for families and kids, to enjoy, be inspired by, to be safe at, and to feel cared for. In doing so we will create an area to fulfill this ethos called…. Kids Together.
This glorious setting is perfect for its proximity to some of Ireland’s largest cities - just 50 minutes from Cork and 90 minutes from Dublin - with plenty of transport links from all main hubs. This 3-day camping festival will provide you with an incredible setting in which to set up your tent or unpack in our bespoke accommodation options, ready to dive right into the site. Those with families can make their 3 day home in our Family Camping Area, an independent space to retreat to with your little ones.
Picture yourself in the sunny south east on the August Bank Holiday, wandering the woodlands and rolling lawns, enjoying an array of fantastic artists, strolling over King John’s Bridge, the oldest bridge in Ireland. Take shade under some of Ireland’s largest trees, relax on the tiered lawns or in the shadows of the original castle tower. Take a walk down tree-lined avenues to see what surprises await you. Watch the sunset create a glow of colour from the 1754 Shell House, bedecked with exotic shells from the farthest-flung corners of the earth.
Music, art, friendship and camaraderie are the tenets by which All Together Now will adhere. 12 miles of stone walls enclose the grounds, creating a magic space for this 10,000 capacity event. The very nature of the grounds will allow you to be right in the midst of the action, or to take time out to relish in the surroundings.
We are indebted to Lord and Lady Waterford for opening the grounds of the Curraghmore Estate to us all - the fabulous landscapes, the drama, the secret spots and hidden gems all lie in wait for you at All Together Now.
We will have plenty to reveal over the course of the next few days & months, so please keep an eye on our website and social channels for up to date announcements here. Sign up to our mailing list here to be the first to hear what we have planned.

Early Bird tickets will go on sale on Friday, 23 February and will be priced from €149.50 and can be purchased from ticketmaster.ie. Campervan Passes go on sale Friday, 23 February priced at €60.00 also from ticketmaster.ie.

All Together Now is Strictly Over 21s.
Children between the ages of 2 and 12 can attend free of charge, accompanied by a parent with a family ticket.

It sounds like the roots of electric picnic from 13 years ago. I read on a different post that the prices being charged are not 13 years old.

Beware booking your motorhome or camper van for the weekend.
Although they are selling tickets for camping with a van, no gas cylinders are allowed on site.
Yet they insist that vans have to be fitted with cooking and washing facilities, not just a mattress in the back of a Transit.
Shame, would have enjoyed the weekend.

430 euro for 2 and a camper. great line up, but i dont think ill be paying that after reading this,
Campervans/caravans can only park in the designated campervan/caravan site and not in the general car parks. Sleeping is not permitted in any vehicles in the car park for safety reasons.

Your campervan must have a door that provides access to the living accommodation. The vehicle must be in a livable condition with a fitted bed, cooking facility & washing facility. These are to be permanent fixtures.

Generators are not permitted.

Gas cylinders & BBQs are not allowed.

and as if to emphasise the point further down is this:
GAS GYLINDERS ARE NOT PERMTTED ANYWHERE IN CAMPSITE INCLUDING CAMPERVANS

Petrol generators are not allowed.

Yeah, they're kinda silly with some of the stipulations. I understand the organisers were involved in Electric Picnic. You think they'd have set this up a lot better.

A good lineup and there are some performance art installations that I would have liked to have seen too, ah well.

Arcadia Spectacular

Too expensive for us... and our kids are both the wrong age. 12-21yo not welcome (apparently)

If any of you go, take a few photos for me. :up:

Exactly, i had an annoying exchange of emails with them, and ended up saying it's rather pointless going.
Shame, it is a good lineup.

That rule has been on a few festivals "no gas cylinders" any we have been to it is ignored, but I cannot vouch for that one.

Just reading between the lines here,

Looks like to me they want to bend you over with the ticket prices,
Then ban your means of cooking so you have to buy your food there,

Its all a bit Irish for me 👎👎

I suppose you do have to buy your food there at overpriced concession vans.

No mention of a ban on diesel generators.

Just spirit away a little stove with a couple of cartridge canisters. How well are they going to search the van?

Alternatively just go some road else.

Is this the same at Stendhal does anyone know? The whole point of us taking the new wagon is so we can cook in the van! Why would you allow motorhomed and no gas?!

It sounds to me like there is a severe lack of understanding of the services which are sold as part of a campervan. These services are all tested to a very high safety standard so I would tell the person who tried to inform me differently where to take themselves to.

Agreed, and following up on that I emailed them and got this reply

"Hi Mike

These all go through health and safety checks prior to gates opening and are monitored for the safety of the festival public.

Well, Stendhal got back and confirmed that we ARE allowed to use internal, built-in gas cooking equipment as long as we have suitable fire gear. I'm assuming that means a fire blanket and we would be carrying that anyway so hurray! Common sense that the Altogether Now Lot could learn from!

Once your gas cylinder is conected up to your camper and you have an in date habitation cert which includes the gas cert, a common security guy cannot refuse you unless he is a bonded and registered gas engineer.
This is a rule brought in to prevent, a fool from blowing up a tent while hung over.

I went to this festival and gas bottles were not confiscated. In fact the festival was fantastic.

The "search" on the way in comprised of the following conversation outside the door of my caravan

Security: "Do you have glass?"
Me: "No"
Security: "Do you have knives?"
Me: "No"
Security: "Do you have gas?"
Me: "No"
Security: "On you go so.."

Would highly recommend this one for next year, really excellent.

Stendhal conversation..

Security: I hope you lot don't have Gas bottles?

Me: every single motorhome in this field has Gas bottles

Security: well I hope they are hidden.

:D


They did ask a few people in campervans to hide their bottles in their van.

You mean you can't hang the gas bottles out of the awning for festival colour
