Forbidden Fruit may seem like it's YEARS away (the countdown began a very long time ago), but it's not too long until you'll be soaking up the sunlight in the pure STUNNING grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, listening to top-class music.
Just picture the scene; You're taking in the sweet, sweet tunes with a refreshing beverage in hand, surrounded by your friends and some randoms you only just met (happens every year).
Forbidden Fruit is the green light which indicates the beginning of summer, and it's been building up in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. The festival draws in some of the biggest emerging talents around.
They've already gifted us with some seriously amazing acts actress the weekend, including grime hero Skepta, majorly-talented dance artist MURA MASA, Paul Kalkbrenner, Jon Hopkins, Saint Sister, First Aid Kit and many more.
Now they've given us a treat to warm our cold, dead, January hearts; they've give us another wave of uber talented acts who are gracing us with their presence this June; Laurent Garnier, Earl Sweatshirt, Peggy Gou, Ry X, Julien Baker, Kojaque, Mahalia, Honey Dijon, Joy Orbison, Empress Of, Barns Courtney, I Have A Tribe and Midland.
Laurent Garnier is a pioneering French DJ making the planet dance for almost 30 years. We're especially pumped tos ee 24-year-old Californian rapper Earl Sweatshirt perform; the former Odd Future member released his third album last year Some Rap Songs and boy, is this guy skilled beyond his years.
Irish representation comes in the form of I Have A Tribe, Dublin’s own Patrick O’Laoghaire. The lad has two EPs (Yellow Raincoats and No Countries) under his belt and his album Beneath A Yellow Moon.
His intimate folk songs has garnered high praise from the likes of the Irish Times, RTE, NME, Q, Clash and The Line Of Best Fit; he's gonna be BIG.
British R&B soul singer Mahalia is making hr Irish outdoor festival debut, and is fresh on the rise after her release Sober, and work with Rudimental.
