Words by Jack Squibb
Plans for festival season 2020 are starting to be made and festivals are slowly revealing what to expect next summer. With no news on who would be heading to Ireland, All Together Now have made the first move, revealing that Iggy Pop is pencilled in to headline the Waterford festival.
It’s only been running for two years but Waterford’s All Together Now has already become one of the biggest festivals in Europe.
Year one saw Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit, Saint Sister and Mogwai To Curraghmore Estate. Year two brought indie heavyweights The National, Loyle Carner, Bombay Bicycle Club and Fontaines D.C. to Waterford.
In two years, All Together Now has established itself as one of Europe’s premium festivals. Now with all eyes on what they’ll do for their third instalment, organisers have revealed that one of punk’s all-time greats, Iggy Pop is the first headliner pencilled in for the 2020 edition.
We are delighted to welcome the godfather of punk to Curraghmore and back to Ireland for his first performance here in 12 years.— All Together Now (@ATNfestival) November 14, 2019

Still performing at the ripe age of 72, Iggy Pop blew us away earlier this year at Mad Cool Festival. The ‘Lust For Life’ singer created an electrifying energy during his set in the Spanish capital. Even though he’s the only name on the line-up so far, All Together Now is already set to be memorable.
As well as revealing their first act for 2020, organisers have announced ticket prices and made them available to buy now.
While the early bird tickets all sold out earlier this autumn, general sale and family camping tickets are now available for €220.00 each. A payment plan is available, where festival-goers can make five payments of €44.00. Unfortunately, for those looking to use campervans, all passes have now sold out.
All Together Now 2020 takes place from July 31st to August 2nd. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here.
