All Together Now site

The historic 3,000-acre Curraghmore Estate in County Waterford will serve as the site for the debut of All Together Now festival, which aims to be environmentally sustainable.

The 15,000-capacity music and arts festival, which is being organised by promoter POD Presents, will take place over the Irish Bank Holiday weekend from 4-5 August.

Established 25 years ago, POD is behind events such as Forbidden Fruit Festival (5,000) at the Irish Museum Of Modern Art in Dublin.

“All Together Now gives us the opportunity to create a sustainable and environmentally-friendly festival where we could decide to set our own standards,” say organisers.

“Sustainability is an immensely important discussion in the given political climate and one we feel we need to act on.”

Plastics will be banned from the festival site and a special ater bottle is being created for audience members to use.

The event will have 16 stages of music, theatre, comedy, spoken word and the line-up includes Fleet Foxes, Mura Masa and First Aid Kit. Tickets cost €179.50 ($210).

Curraghmore Estate is the largest privately-owned estate in Ireland.
