Have any questions about When Next We Meet?


What is When Next We Meet?

When Next We Meet 2023 is a music camping festival. This year at Raheen House Hotel inClonmel, there are two separate ticketed music events taking place on July 1st and July 2nd.It is essentially a launch party! There will be food and bar provisions, as well as 3artists/bands playing in the walled garden on each night.

The 2022 event is not a camping festival.

What time does each event start and finish?

Gates are 5pm on both evenings.

Music in the walled garden ends at 11.00pm.
Branch Out and Tree Top ticket holders will have access to the after-gig bar.

Where can I park?

Roots and Branch Out ticket holders, your best options are the Car Parks on this map, very near to the hotel.

There are sufficient public parking and street parking spaces in Clonmel, only a 5 minute stroll from Raheen House.

Tree Top ticket holders, you may park at Raheen House Hotel.

What if it rains?

“Lá deas a bhí ann. Ní raibh scamall sa spéir. GO TOBANN...”
This is an outdoor event. In Ireland. It will take place in the event of rain.

Please dress appropriately for the weather. There will be ponchos available and we will embrace it and dance anyway. Be prepared!

Are there ‘weekend’ tickets for sale?

No. Each night is sold separately for the 2022 launch event.
You are more than welcome (nay, encouraged!) to go to both nights.

I have a QR code from Citizen Ticket - is this my ticket?

Yes, we will scan your QR code at the gate and in exchange you will receive wristbands, colour coded in line with your ticket type.

If you have a large group booking arriving at different times, it’s best to transfer your ticket to each group member via your Citizen Ticket account.
