Kilmainham prepares to bear Forbidden Fruit

By Cian McKiernan

The Bulmers Forbidden Fruit Festival will take place on the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham this June Bank Holiday Weekend.

The festival is quickly becoming an integral part of summer in Dublin and the cancellation of Oxegen this year can only benefit this fast growing festival.  After last year’s success a third day has been added to the festival.

Electronica duo Leftfield headline the Saturday.  New Order, who reformed last year, headline the Sunday and Wilco headline the newly added Monday.

Other big names on the bill include: Death Cab for Cutie, Beirut, The Rapture and Bloody Beetroots while James Vincent Mc Murrow and Le Galaxie represent the Irish acts.  A further new addition to this year’s festival is the comedy tent.

The festival will run on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of June between 2pm and 10:45pm each day with one open air stage and four tented indoor areas.

Tickets are priced at €49.50 for one day, €89.50 for two and €115 for the whole weekend.  At these low prices the Forbidden Fruit seems even more tempting.
