Some have compared the chaos to Fyre Festival.
Frustrated festival fans have been sitting in traffic for hours today as they attempt to get into All Together Now.
Traffic is at a standstill as people arrive at Curraghmore Estate in Co Waterford for the sold-out festival.
The organisers of All Together Now have been forced to deny rumours that this weekend’s event has been cancelled.
Some of those sharing updates of their wait on social media have compared the chaos to Fyre Festival.
One driver said they moved just 1.5km in 3 hours, while a woman who boarded a bus in Dublin at 11:30am this morning is still waiting to arrive at the gates.
Is that some kind of joke?! I left Dublin at 11.30am. Still here and have yet to see a single steward. pic.twitter.com/k1K8TM3Tya

Festival goers have been complaining of the heat as they wait in their vehicles, with one Twitter user posting: “My 2 and 4 year old have been stuck in the car for 7 hours today trying to access family campsite in the heat, no proper meals, toilets. This is inhuman.”
How are you going to be compensating us @ATNfestival ? Spent over €200 on this ticket and now over 7 hours on the road missing the whole day. Still no information being given whatsoever. It’s a disgrace #AllTogetherNow #atn19

AA Roadwatch says there are still “extremely long delays” in the area:
“Still extremely long delays on routes outside Carrick-On-Suir as people head to All Together Now in Curraghmore House in Waterford (see EVENTS below). The heaviest traffic is on the Dungarvan Rd (R676) and down to the Kilmacthomas turn-off.
“If you’re travelling in the area but not attending the festival, consider alternative routes. If you are travelling to the event, expect long delays and follow Garda directions – bear in mind there’s no access to the site via Portlaw Village.”
