All Together Now – Festival Preview
29 July – 31 July 2022
Curraghmore Estate, County Waterford
For those that missed out on the tickets for Electric Picnic, through choice or slow reaction speed (they went in seconds), this festival should be just about top of your list.
Today, All Together Now has announced some new names, to add to Nick Cave, Underworld and others already announced. From the lineup below, the names that just out at me are Floating Points, Self Esteem, The Murder Capital, A Lazarus Soul, Junior Brother and Niamh Regan. Regardless it’s always nice to hear some new sounds while wandering between tents in (hopefully) the height of summer!
The festival is now just over 16 weeks away with Tickets & Early Entry Passes going on sale Friday at 9 AM. Full details can be found here.

** Global Roots **
The Global Roots area is designed and curated by the multi-talented master craftsman Christy Collard and was created especially for All Together Now in 2019. The main stage is a Greenbuild structure made of wood, utilising fallen trees in the area, in keeping with Christy’s ethos. The area continues to expand, and Christy has fantastic plans in store for 2022. Global Root celebrates a flight-free lineup of homegrown music on this year’s Global Roots, the main stage showcasing the cultural diversity of the contemporary Irish music scene. With guests including A Lazarus Soul, Niamh Regan, Junior Brother, Loah, Rí Rá, SHIV http://www.alltogethernow.ie/global-roots
** Ping Pong Disco **
Club! ArtSpace! Dance-Floor!
Push your wild instincts and dancing desires in our joyously outrageous, pop-up club! A consistently fantastic dance floor, delivering up bold beats and disco bangers, mixed with unpredictably and wonderfully weird live performance.
Performance and acts put together by Cian Austin Jesus (Lords of Strut). Music programming is supported by Eddie Kay with Brian Wallace on art design and resident DJs: Tonie Walsh and MC Gaffe. Go-Go dancing driven by the Ping Pong Girls from Paradise Cabaret. Throw your heels in the air, paint your face and ditch your preconceived ideas, this is clubbing, this is queer and it is beautifully banging! http://www.alltogethernow.ie/pingpong
** Sim Simma **
The Sim Simma crew are delighted to be back, and for their glorious return are focusing primarily on dancing with a lineup that is a reflection of that. Their ethos is to show what dancing really means to people and how important dance is as a tool of expression, healing and joy. Musically speaking, Sim Simma always aims to present a diverse range of artists and genres that represent communities from all over the world, with a particular focus on Caribbean, African and Latin American cultures.
