The Countdown is on for ATN 2023

The countdown is well and truly on for All Together Now 2023 on the 3,000-acre site at the stunning Curraghmore Estate in Portlaw. The festival, set across natural amphitheaters, rolling lawns, gentle hills, and hidden forests takes place this weekend.

There are 18 stages of music, spoken word, comedy, theatre, debate, art, workshops, wellness, and everything in between including bespoke stages such as Arcadia, AVA, Belonging Bandstand, Global Roots, Lovely Days, Ping Pong Disco, The Last City, The Circle and more. With lots of new quirky gems including Éalú Le Grá & Seanchoícheadded to this year’s festival.

Some of the headline acts include Iggy Pop, Lorde, Jamie xx, Caribou, Loyle Carner, Villagers, Jessie Ware, Sugababes, Lankum, Annie Mac, Max Richter and the RTE Concert Orchestra and James Murphy.

Here are some areas to put on your festival schedule:


The dance arena will see Arcadia’s signature 360 degree sounds system arena come to life, hosting 2 components. A visceral battle between a dancing fire-breathing robotic dragon and an intergalactic bug stage, pumping out awesome tunes until the early hours.

Last year, this is where the festival ended on the Sunday night with an epic DJ set from Or:la while flames went off from the stage.      

Seanchoíche comes to All Together Now for the first time

The storytelling night founded in Dublin and currently taking place across the world in cities like London and Melbourne is a space for people from all corners of life to come and listen and engage with spoken stories, ranging from personal anecdotes, monologues, fictional narratives, to poetry pieces and anything in between.

The new Lovely Days Stage with special guest Annie Mac

GNS ATN LovelyDays 1x1

One of the main stages has been reimagined for this year’s festival in collaboration with Guinness. All to create a multisensory space, set to bring magic days and incredible nights to All Together Now, with a new custom-built stage designed for an energetic combination of music, from indie and electronica to laidback rap.

All Together Now and Guinness have curated an incredible line-up for the weekend featuring an electric mix of emerging and established Irish and international artists, including Annie Mac, Tourist, Barry Can’t Swim, Lord Apex, Talos, Ezra Collective, Le Boom and Fight Like Apes.

The Greencrafts Village makes a welcome return to this year’s festival

Located by the Bandstand, Greencrafts Village has a ton of beginner-friendly craft workshops and activities galore where you can create rural and sustainable items to take home and treasure after the festival.

AVA in the Woods

AVA Woods

Last year, this was one of my favourite areas. Three nights of dancing in nature on a natural dancefloor under the stars. What’s not to like?!

Feasts for the Senses

Crudo, recent winner of best casual dining in the 2023 Irish Restaurant Awards, will be on hand to combine traditional Italian cooking with modern flavours for this year’s 4-course sit down meal experience in a Victorian Marquee. They will also have brunch menus on Saturday and Sunday morning.

The are over 40 artisan food stalls at the festival this year, so you won’t go hungry. Gidi’s Great on the Grill is worth a stop for a fusion of Yemenite and Moroccan flavours.  

RISE Nordic Spa 


Break away from the bustling crowd and relax, reset and rejuvenate yourself in wood-fired hot tubs and saunas.

Let the heat cleanse your pores, stimulate circulation, and detoxify your body, leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated.
