After seeing British rock band Yonaka at Sea Sessions, we can't recommend them enough. With a badass lead singer and an album full of bangers, they're ones to watch.

Alt-rock band Inhaler are also on the rise, featuring Bono's son as the lead singer of the indie four-some.

Irish-English rapper Maverick Sabre also adds another level of Irish musicianship to the billing, what a talented man.

Born in Hackney, his family moved to Wexford when he was a youngster and grew up following singer-songwriter rappers like Plan B.

It's Friday night and while to some of you; they  might mean getting glammed up and heading out, for us it's an excuse to put out feet up and watch Tubs on The Late Late.

Sure f*ck it, with guests like this, how could you blame us?

First up is popstar turned country crooner Una Healy who will be in studio to chat about forging her solo career and finding her country roots since saying goodbye to The Saturdays.

Then we have one of the first homegrown film-makers to conquer Hollywood, winning an Oscar for The Crying Game,.

We’ll celebrate Tiger Roll’s famous win at the Grand National, doing the double for the first time since Red Rum, with the women who groomed him for greatness. 

Louise Magee and Karen Morgan will bring the legendary racehorse to meet Ryan.

He will be on to talk about his battle to get the controversial sport of MMA recognised in Ireland and how it has helped change lives and also give his take on what's next for the notorious UFC fighter and his own coaching career.

In summer 1985, a strange phenomenon swept Ireland – reports of moving statues abounded and Ryan will be joined by two of the people who were there to witness this uniquely Irish story as it unfolded, Ballinspittle’s Patricia Bowen and Monasterevin’s John Miller.

Former Ireland international soccer player turned pundit and psychotherapist Richie Sadlier will tell us why we are failing a generation of young people by not talking openly and honestly about sex.

He’ll be telling viewers why he is on a mission to educate teenagers about sex, porn and consent. 

There's all that plus music from Dervish.

So make sure to tune in to RTÉ One, Friday, April 12 at 9.35pm.

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.

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.

Ireland isn't exactly the hotspot for musical talent to visit during the summer, but recently we've been acquiring some absolutely MAJOR acts from around the world.

Some of us may remember the days of Oxygen (Rest in Pieces), but Electric Picnic has taken over as the biggest and most popular festival in the Irish calendar.

Longitude appears to have become the most 'hip-hop' festival in town overnight, who saw that one coming? All the young ones adore it, hence why artists such as Chance the Rapper, Future and AS$P Rocky are headlining it this year.

Oh, and the queen that is CARDI B (gasp)… this will be us when she emerges on stage like the glorious, ghetto peacock that she is:

Luckily for you, we've decided to do a round-up of EVERYTHING there is to know of 2019's Irish music festivals.

Strap yourselves in, get your raincoat and wellies ready, it's looking like a muddy ride. 

God knows why we all live for summer's music gigs, most of us have had our stuff stolen, our tents destroyed and our dignity abandoned, yet we still come crawling back for more. Must be our dedication to the art, or something?

First up: Castlepalooza: May 3 – May 5 2019

Things have been pretty hush hush this year in Castlepalooza-land. So far, no headline acts have been announced and even the early bird tickets aren't on sale yet.

As far as speculation goes, they normally stick to Irish acts such as AllTvvins and The Rubberbandits, so maybe they'll get Dermot Kennedy or Picture This?

We're assuming it's still taking place in Charleville Castle, Tullamore, but they've changed the dates so who knows. All will be revealed.

Life Festival: May 24 – May 26 2019

For #Life19, some major dance players have been given the green light to DJ, including Giggs, Bicep, MK, Nina Kraviz and CamelPhat. Think District 8 but in the woodlands.

The festival is returning to Belvedere House in County Westmeath for a weekend of phenomenal tunes. There are three days, six stages and a jam-packed line-up.

Chill by the lakeside stage for a more relaxed vibe, or hit the District 8 tent and Main Stage for absolute dance mania.

Vantastival: 31 May – June 2 2019

Known as the last real festival for camper vans and 'legit' music lover families, Vantastival is relatively unknown in some circles but a must-see in others.

Taking place in Drogheda, Co. Louth, the festival boasts comedy shows, craft beer, art installations and a kids' camp for families.

The festival gets some unbelievable talent up to play, and the headline acts this year have already been announced.

King Kong Company, David Keenan, Cry Monster Cry, Just Mustard and I'd Fight Gandhi are all hitting the stages this year, it's gonna be a BIG one for their 10th anniversary.

Forbidden Fruit: June 1 – June 3 2019

Forbidden Fruit has been a steadily growing Irish festival for years, with some well-known as well as emerging talent performing DJ sets in the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham.

Headliners this year are Mura Masa (INCREDIBLE), Skepta, Elbow, First Aid Kit and Danny Brown. They're spreading out the genres this year, bringing in some new and more alternative names.

Tickets went on-sale back in December, but there are still a few left. We recommend grabbing them before they're gone.

Body&Soul: June 21 – June 23 2019

The arts festival takes place in Ballinlough, Co. Westmeath, and it's celebrating it's 10th run this year.

Previous headliners include Nick Cave, but they have yet to tease 2019's fixtures. 

It's a cesspit for creative minds, branding itself as the biggest 'independent' festival in Ireland. They're announcing the line-up very soon, so stay tuned. We're guessing perhaps Christine and the Queens?

Sea Sessions: June 21- June 23 2019

Sea Sessions is well on the rise. The festival is specifically for surfers, and takes place in Bundoran, Co. Donegal for those sea lovers every year.

They've got a STELLAR line-up for 2019: Sigrid (I cried when I saw her, not gonna lie), Clean Bandit and Two Door Cinema Club are the star acts who will blaze up that stage.

This one looks set to be an incredible year, especially if the weather holds up. Tickets are on sale now, but it sells out every year so get on it ASAP.

Longitude – July 5 – July 7 2019

They've just announced some massive names to the chart: Cardi B and Anne-Marie are two unreal additions.

The festival is running from Friday July 5 until Sunday July 7 in Marlay Park, and always gets some pure stunning weather (for once).

The line-ups have DRASTICALLY changed even since 2017, when Mumford & Sons took centre stage. It's all about those rap stars nowadays, who would have thought Irish people would crave the genre so much? Maybe it's just the young wans.

Tickets are back on sale this Friday, February 1 at 9am. Get ready for online mayhem, as Cardi B is sure to attract thousands of eager fans.

All Together Now: August 2 – August 4 2019

The festival takes place in Curraghmore House in County Waterford during the August Bank Holiday, so it's always a sure-fire hit.

American indie band The National are the headliners for this year's take; previous performers include Fleet Foxes, Mura Masa, Villagers and First Aid Kit.

Most of the tickets have already sold-out for this year's festival, but there's always DoneDeal? Camper van tickets are also still available, but not much else except the higher priced ones.

Electric Picnic: August 30 – September 1 2019

So E.P. is ALREADY sold-out, as predicted. 

The speculation has begun, seeing as nobody is aware of the line-up as of yet, and we're gonna go ahead and pray that our home-girl ARIANA GRANDE hits the Main Stage. Get your rosary beads out.

Last year saw N.E.R.D, Kendrick Lamar and The Prodigy hit the stage as headliners, and Sigrid and Dua Lipa absolutely smashed it during their performances. We'd love to see those gals return with new albums under their belts.

There you are, gals. The ULTIMATE Irish music festival round-up for 2019…so far. We're tingling with excitement already at the thought of sneaking in all those naggins/cans/wine bottles/shoulders/litres/whatever the kids drink nowadays.

Now all we need is the funds to afford any/all of these amazing gigs. Maybe we could sneak in?

We're already more than excited for this summer's festival season, and kicking it all off on the June bank holiday is Forbidden Fruit. 

The early bird tickets are currently flying out the door, and with good reason. 

The festival previously revealed that The War on Drugs would be taking to the stage at the Dublin festival, and now more acts have been added to the line up. 

Richie Hawtin, Four Tet Live, Mike D, Ben UFO, DJ Deece, Ibibio Sound Machine and AE MAK have all bee added to the festival rota. 

The festival, which takes place at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Kilmainham, has also identified which acts are playing on what days.

We wouldn't miss it.

Well, it looks like we're in for a dramatic Celebrity Big Brother this year.

Last Friday, Emma Willis, who presents the show, revealed that the line up has been confirmed, and even though 80s popstar Sinitta has already quit, it looks like we'll be in for an explosive series.

According to The Daily Star on Sunday, the line up is as follows:

  • Pete Wicks of TOWIE fame

  • Amelia Lily from The X Factor

  • Sandi Bolge who recently quit Gogglebox

  • Jucy Lucy from Ex on the Beach

  • Brandi Glanville from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

  • Nathan Henry from Geordie Shore

  • Rodrigo Alves who is known as 'the human Ken doll'

If the leaked list is to be believed, we're sure that a few of these people will clash heads.

Pete's on/off girlfriend Megan McKenna took part in the show in 2016, and produced some pretty tense scenes in the house.

We're looking forward to seeing Sandi join CBB, and since her former co-star Scarlett Moffatt won I'm A Celeb, we're hoping the budding singer does just as well on this series.

So, are we all ready for Longitude?

We know we are.

And now the festival has just tweeted out all of its show times, as well as last minute acts that have been added to the line up.
