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.

Following yesterday’s first day flaming lip-smacking line-up announcement and our Forbidden Fruit competition from earlier..

The Forbidden Fruit bill [above] for Sunday, June 1 was unveiled this morning.

And what a line-up, in fairness.

All the acts you‘ve never heard of except Public Enemy love in one day in the centre of Dublin.

Plus comedy, fine food and ‘festival fun’.

The Pod have given us TWO pairs of Tickers to the second day to give away to TWO genuine music fans.

They simply ask that YOU complete this sentence to enter.

Just send me the tickets as I have an emotional attachment to [name of artist appearing on second day here] because______________________

Lines must close at 11pm 1am.
