It Just Wasn’t Meant to Be | ALS 2020 Goes Online

Without the sentinel compass point of Another Love Story, the festival organisers are finding themselves suddenly and startlingly at the point where they normally embark to the bucolic pastures of The Manor – busy creating magic from the scattered dust of their dreams.

So, while they have accepted their collective 2020 fate as best they can, they still didn’t want to let the moment pass, and not to mark the weekend that ALS 2020 was due to erupt without some celebration, and some iteration of the programme they had drawn together over the past 12 months.

IT JUST WASN’T MEANT TO BE presents live performances & Dj sets online from some of the cherished corners of Killyon Manor, and beyond, from festival friends:

ALS 2020 Online will feature live performances from:

jape | Anna Mieke X Glasshouse | Rozi Plain (UK) | The Bonk | Fazer Fazer Fazer (DE) | Rachael Lavelle | Jonny Dillon (solo guitar) | Young Hearts Run Free & More.


SAT AUG 15th, 8pm: The ALS Shift Shack Soundsystem LIVE from The Shift Shack

SUN AUG 16th, 8pm: It Just Wasn’t Meant to Be | ALS 2020 Online

Aired (free to view) on | Facebook | Twitch

While already recipients of untold generosity in recent months, organisers are humbly asking viewers to further support their endeavours, and efforts to produce something worthy of the weekend here, and to continue to use the ALS platform to promote and support artists and true artistry, by purchasing a viewing ticket for €10, or donate at their own leisure at:
