Bulmers & POD present


Saturday 2nd-Monday 4th June

June Bank Holiday Weekend

At The Royal Hospital, Kilmainham

Gates 2pm-10.45pm daily


Winner of Best New Festival at the Irish Festival Awards for 2011; Forbidden Fruit is returning for another Bank Holiday feast of music, art and fashion. Today marks the announcement of an impressive line-up that will tickle taste buds and have festival goers longing for another bite of Forbidden Fruit. Most notably, Manchester legends NEW ORDER play their first Dublin headline show since 1986 when they close the main stage on the Sunday.

Now extended to three days with five stages, the non-camping festival is a urban fusion of music, art, fashion and now also comedy; with a new comedy stage being added this year. The music line-up across the three days features iconic as well as up and coming artists, offering a variety of different genres to reflect the diverse modern music tastes of today. Each day's music line-up has a slightly different bend, ranging from an electronic bill on the Saturday to an indie/folk bill on the Monday; with the Sunday bill somewhere between the two!

Together with a fine array of delicious food, creative craft stalls and the usual festival quirks and oddities, Forbidden Fruit is the finest reason to spend a Bank Holiday weekend in Dublin. Tickets for the festival are affordable, starting from just 49.50 for one day early bird tickets, and further discounts for the two and three day options.

Bloody Beetroots
