Festival Information

Forbidden Fruit 2012 Overview

Forbidden Fruit - A Dublin City Centre Multi-Stage Music & Arts Festival. 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. Now extended to three days with five stages, the non-camping festival is an 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! 

Artists booked to appear include New Order, Wilco, and James Vincent McMorrow.

Ticket prices (from): Limited Early Birds: €45/€85/€110
