The dust has barely settled on the second edition of Waterford's All Together Now Festival but organisers aren't wasting any time in revealing details for next year.
It's been announced that All Together Now 2020 will take place at the Curraghmore Estate from July 31 to August 3 2020, which is the August Bank Holiday weekend. Tickets will go on sale on Thursday August 29 at 9am and if you were there this year or last year then you will be well looked after. The 'loyalty presale' allows those who have previously attended the festival a chance to avail of early bird ticket prices before the festival goes on general sale. As well as that, All Together Now regulars will be given the chance to get general and family campervan passes for €75.
General tickets cost €220 and if you're worried about burning a hole in your pocket then fear not. The festival is introducing an instalment plan which means you can spread the cost of your ticket across five payments of €44 as follows:
1st payment - Day of purchase
2nd payment - November 25 2019
3rd payment - January 27 2020
4th payment - February 24 2020
Final Payments - March 30 2020
For many people, the 2019 festival will be remembered for traffic problems and other issues that cropped up over the weekend and organisers haven't ignored this with today's announcement. Next year's details were accompanied with a statement which says:
'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 note 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 traveling 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.'
It added that the festival's capacity will not increase next year so hopefully things will run a little bit smoother. Let the planning commence.
