Special music guests and food events announced for All Together Now

With just 16 days until the All Together Now festival, six special music guests and the food events have just been announced.

The festival runs across the three days of the August Bank Holiday Weekend.


Following his performance at Dublin’s National Concert Hall last week, Rufus Wainwright will be taking to one of the 18 stages at the festival.

He has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation.


Singer-songwriter Ryan O’Shaughnessy will also be taking to the stage along with DJ and producer, Nabihah Iqbal, and Mås Exödus who explores modern contemporary jazz sounds along with his band of Irish players.

Many more special guests will be present across the weekend.


Food writer Joe McNamee will host a two-day extravaganza of events, demos, cooking competitions, tastings, workshops, and debates in The Grub Circus at The Theatre of Food.

Some of Ireland's top food personalities will feature in the Circus. From chefs to producers and growers to makers, lots of familiar faces will be present.


TV Gardener Diarmuid Gavin, Food & Wine magazine editor Gillian Nelis, and TV chef Paul Flynn are just a few of those that are participating.

Other Theatre of Food events include Natural Born Killers - a celebration of the Irish world of natural wine, Chocolate Blind Date - a winning combination of love and chocolate, and Mushroom Magic - the real scoop on the health and wellbeing properties of mushrooms.

The Pitt Bros Smoked Barbeque X John Relihan Experience will be hosted across the three days. It is an exclusive sit-down Barbeque Feast with seven dining sessions.

Produce, Provenance and Barbecue are the three principles of the Experience. The menu includes a three-course sit-down Barbeque Feast with vegan options available.

Tickets can be found via Eventbrite.
