Following the huge success of the inaugural All Together Now in 2018, the first announcement for next year's festival is due to be announcement on Friday, December 7.
The second All Together Now festival will take place following the triumph of last year.
It will no doubt be a bittersweet occasion, following on from the death of legendary Irish promoter John Reynolds, who was one of the festival's founders.
Writing ahead of tomorrow's announcement, ATN's organisers said today:
This year we set off on All Together Now’s maiden voyage. Curraghmore Estate’s 3000 acres provided a setting so fruitful and so beautiful, with incredible history. We had the pleasure of creating and curating a festival here - a festival which has boundless possibility as it evolves each year. This year’s festival carried an inspiring atmosphere, where people were respectful of each other, the incredible landscape and wonderful performers.
"Setting off on this journey, we endeavoured to embrace the landscape’s beauty, to honour the past but also to collaborate and create a new future. Following the sad and sudden loss of John Reynolds, the founder of POD, the whole team look forward to realising the vision and dedication, which over the last three decades changed the Irish cultural landscape. In this year’s festival programme, John proclaimed himself as 'the so-called captain of the best team in the world'. When creating a festival, something happens…similar to creating art, what has been made carries a history and a future, the beauty of it, just like a work of art that is created, can live long past the creator, respecting its history but continuing to evolve with a vision of the future. Festivals provide many states of emotion for people, a place to rebel, a place to escape, a place to reflect and a place to celebrate. All Together Now’s ethos was to create a place for like-minded people - music lovers, passionate performers, families, artists, musicians, creators, rebels and refugees of a changing festival landscape - to come together and create a truly magical atmosphere across one weekend."
"There is a piece of us all in All Together Now."
All Together Now will take place between August 2-4. General & Family tickets for All Together Now 2019 are ON SALE NOW priced at €199.50 available until December 31st.
