Remy's Guide to Forbidden Fruit - Day 1

Forbidden Fruit Festival 2017 Line Up

Info: The advent of festival season is almost upon us here in Ireland, and the most welcome gauntlet is thrown down by the seventh Forbidden Fruit Festival at its customary home in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in Kilmainham, Dublin 8. In addition, the festival organisers will also have acts performing at various venues around the city centre for when the sun has gone down (details below). 

Over the next few weeks I'll be providing three individual ready made Playlists for each of the festival's 3 days over the June Bank Holiday weekend. You'll have plenty of time to digest all of the music well in advance of landing at the festival, and be equipped to make both concerted and whimsical stage choices by the time it comes around!

One thing I'd like to highlight is that the festival has added a sixth stage for the first time this year, exclusively for up and coming independent Irish acts. Normally I'd feel a little awkward about being parochial, but the line-ups on the Bulmers One Hundred Percent Irish Artists stage over the three days are top drawer, you'll end up with just as many fond memories at that stage as you will at any of the rest. This stage is also a reflection of the high standard of local music we have been spoiled by over the last few years.

Tycho - 'Awake' (Live @ KCRW)

As well as top acts leading the way on the Saturday in the form of Orbital, Booka Shade with Craig Winters and Tycho, there will also be Irish acts Jafaris, Bonzai, Brame & Hamo and the wonderful Trinity Orchestra. On the aforementioned exclusively Irish artists stage, we can expect to see many favourites such as Le Boom, BARQ, Tara Lee and Super Silly
