It’s getting very close to Festival Season in Waterford you’ll all be happy to know
When you think of Festivals in Ireland, you usually think of the big ones like the famous Electric Picnic, Longitude, Indiependence, Life Fest, Body & Soul and so on and so on. But, what if I told you that you wouldn’t have to leave Waterford for that exhilarating festival feeling that you all crave?
Well, it’s true! Waterford is an exciting hub of entertainment, music, food and street art over the summer months with many Festivals to choose from. Electricity runs through this ancient city creating an atmosphere that we desire and dream of when we think of the word “festival”. Whatever your plans are this summer, whether discovering Ireland’s Ancient East, Cycling the Waterford Greenway or simply having a city break away, I highly recommend you to fit one of these incredible Festivals into your schedule this summer.
All Together Now
It takes places on the August Bank Holiday. All Together Now is set across 16 stages, featuring natural amphitheatres, secret woodland stages, the Belonging Bandstand and more. All Together Now’s ethos is to create a place for like-minded people – music lovers, passionate performers, families, artists, musicians, creators, rebels and refugees of a changing festival landscape – to come together and create a truly magical atmosphere across one weekend
Summer In the City
This is a completely free event- like music to my ears. All you have to do is join in! These events run from June to mid-August.
