All Together Now 2023

Are you Waterford-bound this bank holiday weekend? Here’s all you need to know ahead of one of Ireland’s favourite festivals.

Now in its fourth year, All Together Now makes its triumphant return to Curraghmore Estate in the lush green Waterford countryside this weekend.

If you’re heading along for a weekend of music, food and muddy wellies and want to make sure you’re adequately organised before departing, here’s a handy round up of all you need to know ahead of this year’s festival.

Final tickets

There are very, very limited tickets available from official Ticketmaster outlets only. Organisers have advised punters to be careful not to purchase from unofficial outlets, as these may be counterfeit.

Getting there

You can check out the ATN app or website for directions to get there by car, bus and train. The car park and campsite will open Thursday August 3rd at 16.00 for Early Entry ticket holders, boutique campers and campervan holders. The gates will be open for all tomorrow – Friday, August 4th at 09.00.

Travelling by road between 09.00 – 13.00 is one of the quietest times to travel to the festival, according to organisers.

For Traffic News check Local Radio (WLR 95.1FM & BEAT 102.0FM), the Festival App (Download from the App Store & Google Play), and Twitter/X @ATNFestival for the latest travel news as well as live updates.

Weather essentials & what to bring

With the summer we’ve been having (if you’d call it that), it’s definitely wise to prepare for all eventualities weather-wise. Bring along waterproofs, wellies, hats, scarves, sun cream and shades – bring it all. The ground might be a little soft underfoot! Also, photo ID, your tickets, sleeping bag, tent, loo roll, bank card and toiletries.

Alcohol can only be brought onto the festival site the first time you arrive and are wristbanded. The alcohol allowance is 24 cans/1 litre of spirits or 1.5 litre of wine for personal consumption. These can be brought into the campsite and main arena. No glass bottles are allowed. You’re also requested to decant your alcohol into non-glass bottle, and ATN organisers recommend using reusable bottles. Please remember to always drink responsibly.

Stage times & site map

The Bank Of Ireland ATN  festival app has everything you need – it is the only place to check out the festival’s site map. It’s a great way to keep up to date with everything as it happens, travel news, any stage time changes, and everything in between.

Mobile tickets

Mobile tickets are downloaded directly to your phone. No need to print or search through your emails – find them in your Ticketmaster account and on the app, or save them to your mobile wallet. You can check out a step-by-step guide on how to download your tickets via the ticketmaster website.

Do’s and don’ts

Have a read through the ATN website for a list of what you can and cannot bring with you to the site. Organisers have suggested that if you don’t need an item, don’t bring it, especially any valuables. Remember professional photographic equipment is not permitted at the festival. You can find a list of what is prohibited to bring on-site right here

Payments

The festival’s bars will be cashless and accept cards and contactless payments only, so bring your credit or debit card with you! Traders will accept card/contactless and cash payments. There is also an ATM on site. Be ready to make any purchases with Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Wallet and contactless cards.

God speed, festival girlies and guys. Let’s hope the clouds part.
