Waterford’s All Together Now organisers bow to the inevitable as they cancel festival
The organisers of Waterford’s All Together Now (ATN) festival have announced that the festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak and will not be rescheduled for later in the year.
ATN 2020 was due to take place over the August Bank Holiday Weekend from July 31- August 2 at Curraghmore Estate and the cancellation comes after after it was announced yesterday by the Government that all mass gatherings of 5,000 people or more have been ruled out until autumn.
“Following today’s announcement from the Irish Government extending restrictions on licensed events and gatherings into the summer, it’s with great sadness we announce that this year’s All Together Now will not be able to take place,” a post on their website said.
“Like everyone across the world, we’ve been watching the ongoing effects that COVID-19 is having on our everyday lives. The health and safety of our audience, team and performers, plus the extended communities, to which they belong, takes total precedence at this time of global crisis.
Festival tickets for ATN 2020 will be fully valid for ATN 2021 next year and we would ask you to stand with us through this time and hold your tickets, as an independent Irish festival, doing so will go a long way to our survival through these challenging times.
“Ticketmaster will be in contact with ticket holders within the next 7-days.
We have never needed something to look forward to as much as we do now! We promise that we will continue to work tirelessly to make next year’s festival an unforgettable celebration of TOGETHERNESS – All Together Now 2021 July 30 to August 1.”
