As the dust settles the All Together Now team look back on and take stock of their second chapter. Firstly, the All Together Now team would like to say they are absolutely and fully committed to making sure that the issues that arose this year’s festival are not repeated. They have taken in every comment, every email and are carefully taking stock of where they need to improve. They have met and are working closely with An Garda Siochana and their other partner agencies to ensure that the traffic experienced travelling to this year’s festival does not happen again. The All Together Now team aim for the highest standards and plan to deliver the best festival experience possible. They are deeply disappointed that some areas of this years All Together Now fell short of expectations, and for this, they are truly sorry.
The All Together Now team have been heartened by the All Together Now community that has taken the time to share their experience with them. Although there were negatives, which they have to and will address and improve for their third edition, there were some amazing and memorable moments. You were respectful of each other, of the beautiful landscape and all the 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. The 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.
The All Together Now team 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.

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.
The All Together Now team would also like to take this opportunity to thank Lord and Lady Waterford for opening up Curraghmore Estate to us all. "We thank Waterford County Council, Tramore Gardai, Waterford Fire Brigade, and the HSE - all of whom have been so helpful and supportive in all aspects of the development of this festival. We want to thank all the residents of Portlaw and Carrick-On-Suir for their continued hospitality and kindness. We thank all the performers, volunteers."
"Our creative team that comes together in Curraghmore from all around the world, are already hard at work dreaming of new ideas to enhance next year's festival.
