As part of a wider range of key festival improvements for their return.
The hotly anticipated return of All Together Now is drawing closer and after a two year hiatus, organisers have confirmed they'll be implementing a traffic management plan, as well as an additional entrance, more traffic marshals and live traffic updates for the event.
The ATN team said:
We acknowledge the issues from 2019 and our team, alongside our partners and traffic experts, have worked tirelessly ever since to improve the journey to and from the festival for this year’s edition.
The key points for the festival improvements are as follows:
An additional entrance to the grounds of Curraghmore Estate has been created, along with a brand new internal road.
Additional traffic marshals have been engaged to assist the free flow of traffic throughout the site.
A revised traffic management plan will be in place in consultation with ATN's agency partners and traffic management experts. This plan will be released two weeks before the festival.
- ATN will be provide up-to-date travel news and live updates via their Festival App, Twitter account and local radio.
Early Entry Camping is now available allowing general, prepitched, and boutique campers into the campsite from 4pm Thursday, 28th July for those wishing to set up camp early. More info is available here. Family Weekend Camping ticket holders may gain access to the festival from Friday, 29th at 9AM.
Campervan & caravans can now access the site from 4pm Thursday, 28th July.
For those without early entrance passes, the carpark & campsite will open at 9am Friday, July 29th. ATN have advised that the hours between 9am - 3pm will be among the quietest to travel to the festival.
The new general campsite location is now within 100 meters from the newly located festival entrance, with two entrances into the main area.
Boutique camping will now be located next to the ATN Main Stage with the addition of a new bar.
- ATN have engaged an environmental expert to regularly monitor for wasp nests on the grounds of Curraghmore Estate. Currently, none have been identified. This will be monitored and managed across the build and weekend of the festival.
Native Events have come on board as the festival's sustainability consultants and will be on site auditing campsites, waste management and carbon emissions.
As well as this, regular Bus Éirean Expressway services will be available from Waterford Bus Station to Curraghmore House each day from Friday 29th July to Monday 1st August. In addition to this, direct non-stop services from Dublin and Cork city centres will operate to the festival on Friday 29th July with return journeys on Monday 1st August.
