Pop will headline All Together Now next year, three years after he was booked to to lead the festival in 2020. His original booking was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds became the headlining act of last year.
The festival will be The Stooges rocker’s first one in Ireland in 15 years, and it is set to feature hits from every era of the 75-year-old punk godfather’s career.
In 2019 Iggy Pop released his Free album, after previously suggesting that 2016′s widely-acclaimed Post Pop Depression was to be his last. His last performance at the Barbican in London was recently reviewed as “brilliantly spirited” by The Guardian.
The All Together Now Festival will return to Curraghmore House, Waterford, on the Irish Bank Holiday weekend, from the 4-6 August. Over 100 acts are lined up to perform across 16 stages over the weekend.
Artists already confirmed include LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy – who will play a DJ set – Billy Bragg, Lisa O’Neill, Fight Like Apes, Saint Sister, Andy Irvine and David Kitt.
Elsewhere, Sugababes will also be performing at an Irish festival for the first time in 15 years, as the original trio of Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan are scheduled to play at the festival after their performance at Glastonbury 2023.#
General, family, and early entry passes and additional campervan passes will go on sale on Ticketmaster and other usual outlets, on Thursday, May 11. Tier one, two and three passes are already sold out, but tier four tickets will go on sale – priced at €235 each.
