Bringing alcohol in

You can bring in alcohol but there are limitations.

Each person on a weekend camping ticket is allowed to bring 24 cans OR one litre of spirits OR 1.5 litres of wine for personal consumption – subject to initial entry only. These can be brought into the campsite and the main arena.

Alcohol may be brought onto the site at time of first entry only. There is no re-entry with alcohol once you're wrist-banded.

For safety reasons, punters are not allowed to bring glass bottles into the campsite or festival arena. Instead, festival-goers are encouraged to decant alcohol into non-glass bottles/containers.

Paying

All Together Now is a cashless event. All bars, concessions and traders will accept contactless payments or chip and PIN payments. Be ready to make any purchases with Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Wallet and contactless cards.

Toilets and Showers

Toilets will be located throughout the campsites and the festival arenas.

Showers can be found in the campsites, and will be open at specified times throughout the weekend.

Tickets

Unfortunately, the festival is sold out so unless you already have a ticket bought already, you won't be able to experience this amazing event.
