Festivals You May Like: Forbidden Fruit (Saturday)



Forbidden Fruit – Saturday day passes on sale now
Saturday June 4th, Royal Hospital, Kilmainham

01. Day passes are now on sale for the Saturday of Forbidden Fruit, happening June 4 at Kilmainham’s Royal Hospital.

02. As covered in our round-up last week, the day is being headlined by psych-rock iconoclasts Tame Impala, off the back of 2015’s breakthrough Currents LP, math-rock elder statesmen Battles, soul collective Jungle, house duo Tale of Us, and a live performance from minimalist experimental techno duo Kiasmos.

03. Added to the line-up are grime pioneer Skepta, US rapper Freddie Gibbs, and a live audiovisual show from Dublin house/turntablism/etc. man Kormac and collaborators.

04. More to be announced, of course. We’ll keep you updated with more line-up announcements as and when we get them. €59.50 at the usual outlets, while stocks last, etc.

Verdict: Skepta is an influential name to add to any festival bill, and should help pique interest in day tickets. Kormac’s various live excursions have also been fest favourites, while Freddie Gibbs adds weight to proceedings. Bodes well for further announcements.

    It’s a terrible festival. Last year was my third time and last time to go. Had freebie passes for whole weekend but couldn’t face more than 3 hours in the hell hole.
    Simple things like a serious lack of loos. There were girls who literally couldn’t hold it in-had no option but to drop their kaks and squat. Bar queue took 40+ min. Crowd was rough. Sound at main stage was abysmal-wu tang sounded like they had no mics. I could go on but I won’t.

    I live in the complex beside RHK and the crowd at FF last year was AWFUL- they spent the whole weekend drinking outside the supervalue and then pissing and sh11ting everywhere. I’m getting the hell out of Dublin this June bank holiday.

    Unreal line up for it!!

    Does anybody know how many stages there are?
    And also, what day is Maya Jane Coles playing?

      3 in a space about the size of 2 football pitches, so you get that lovely sound bleed no matter where you go.
