Designed by master craftsman Christy Collard and created especially for All Together Now, the Global Roots area is nestled in the forest of the lush Curraghmore Estate. The bespoke Global Roots Stage is a hand-crafted Greenbuild structure, made from natural materials that will stand tucked within the trees.
Bringing this stage to life, the music line-up will be jam-packed with live acts leading into late night DJ sets covering reggae, funk, Latin, African, Celtic, jazz, soul, ska, Arabic, Indian and more.
“Imagine entering an exotic land, a leafy jungle, and discovering a place that invites you to enjoy the vibrant colours, the magically lit trees, and art installations," Christy Collard says in a statement about the new area. "The aesthetics will be beautiful, a celebration of diversity and togetherness."
All Together Now have also revealed the line-up for All Kinds Of Everything, presented by Sim Simma. The stage leads festival-goers through the evolution and innovation of dance music, showing in particular how communities from around the world have grown and experimented with different influences, styles and genres.
During the day, you can expect to hear plenty of early roots reggae, cumbia, mento, highlife, calypso and afrobeat from the Caribbean, West Africa and South America. As night falls, they will be showcasing hybrid styles of hip hop, grime, jungle, drum 'n' bass, dancehall, afrobeats, footwork, kuduro And baile funk pioneered by collectives and labels from across the globe.
Every artist featured in the All Kinds Of Everything line-up is part of an exciting new scene in Irish dance music and club culture, each pushing their own innovative sound to create something different that resonates with people right now.
All Together Now is completely sold out. See the extended line-up poster below:
