ALS Area By Area

Another Love Story has always been about using a number of small (ish!) spaces to the best of their natural advantages, to present an array of local and international artist to set the tempo and the map of your weekend at ALS. From The Ballroom to The Shift Shack things have changed and shifted as the festival has gently expanded into the mysterious surrounds of The Manor – and from our small beginnings in 2014 we now have 8 (!) complete little worlds for you to experience the majesty of Another Love Story. 
 

FURTHER
AFIELD

FURTHER AFIELD

Our beautiful main stage, a bespoke build designed and created by our dear friends Mammals +, Further Afield is nestled in a perfect corner of the back lawns of The Manor – and is set up equally for an afternoon’s lounging or a late night party with some top class Irish and select international guests. 

THE FRONT

Debuting in 2022 – The Front is our lovely second stage, housed in a gorgeous tent at the (you guessed it) the front of The Manor and home to a very carefully selected collection of emerging Irish acts, and a hand picked selection of international guests.

TREE HAUS

Another 2022 debut – and Another great collaboration with Mammals + , Tree Haus is our new late night arena. Expect absolutely top class, roaring house music and cutting edge live acts on the stage that we are most proud of. Come dance with us under the red tower, and under the trees! 

WAY OUT THERE

This cosy tipi sits on the side of the Manor lawn and plays host to a slightly more nuanced cohort of djs and selectors – with everything from world sounds, jazz, fusion sounds – and straight up party classics. This is a softer landing for those with wider pallets, and dancing feet.

MOON RIVER

Another cosy tips – but this time perfectly pitched on the banks of the River Deel, which winds it’s way through The Manor grounds, and through The Mellow Meadow – our oasis away for all the hubbub of the main festival area. Adventure through the woods and arrive to a programme of music, talks and more from our dearest friend Young Hearts Run Free. Expect incredible creative tales, heart stopping music, and ambient interludes to wind the night down. 

THE ISLAND WOODS

Take a journey into the woods! This beautiful glade in the woods is home to a special programme of traditional music and amazing talent from the local area and beyond with thanks to our friends Meath Arts Office and The Baltimore Fiddle Fair.

THE MELLOW MEADOW

Adventure through the woods and arrive to The Mellow Meadow – our oasis or calm away for all the hubbub of the main festival area nestled on the banks of the gentle River Deel. The MM hosts our ALS Wellness Area with a dedicated programme of Yoga, Massage and workshops, the crucial Bosca Beatha Sauna, The ALS River Swimming Deck, and of course, Moon River – another cosy tipi hosted by our dearest friend Siobhan Kane AKA Young Hearts Run Free – and a programme of music, talks and so much more. Expect incredible creative tales, heart stopping music, and ambient interludes to wind the night down.  

 

THE SHIFT YARD

It began as The Shift Shack – the tiniest club in the land, and has breathed outwards into The Shift Yard – a beautiful courtyard hidden in against the wings of the 18th century manor – the perfect hideaway for a daily programme of full pelt, no holes barred dancing led by the now infamous Shift Shack Soundsystem – our crew family gang of djs – and select friends who will keep the party going well into the small hours of the morning.

We were worried we might loose the essence of The Shack when we moved into The Yard, but instead we just got more Shack for our buck – it’s a vibe! 

WAY OUT FRONT

NEW for 2022 a daytime vibe at The Front of The Manor – with a hand picked selection of djs who will set the tone as you grab a coffee and food. Easy listening, laid back vibes all the way here.
