The group played the inaugural All Together Now in 2018.
Underworld will return as one of the headliners for All Together Now 2021. This is the first of many to be announced in the new year, for the third chapter of the Curraghmore Estate festival, set across 18 stages of music, comedy, theatre, spoken word and more.
Underworld, also known as Rick Smith and Karl Hyde, are a true one-off - the Welsh duo have headlined the world’s biggest festivals and events, playing underground techno clubs and warehouses, sound-tracking theatre productions or taking over art galleries, disused shoe shops, and Japanese department stores. From playing at All Together Now’s maiden voyage in 2018, this marks Underworld’s return to both Ireland and the festival 3 years later.
Having cemented their place in the ’90s underground techno scene, the group’s definitive breakthrough came in 1996 when their timeless anthem ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’ became the soundtrack of a generation after it was featured in the film Trainspotting.
The following two decades saw them build on that success, while never compromising. They have sold millions of albums, performed countless sold-out shows, provided scores and sound-tracked the Opening Ceremony to the London 2012 Olympic Games. The critical and commercial success of the band’s Grammy-nominated 2016 album ‘Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future’ saw them headline stages at Coachella, Glastonbury and Summer Sonic. Over the course of 2019, Underworld published new material every week as a part of their ambitious DRIFT series.
General and Family weekend tickets are on sale now, via ticketmaster.ie, and all ATN 2020 tickets will be valid for 2021.
