The Hot Press Newsdesk, 04 May 2011
The inagural Forbidden Fruit festival, happening on the June bank holiday just gets more exciting as we get closer to it with several new tasty additions to the line-up announced just today.
Virtusoso-beatbox extraordinaire Beardymen, whose debut album was called "a work of mad genius" byHP's Celina Murphy back in March will take to the Undergrowth dance stage on Saturday June 4 alongside Belgian electro act The Subs and Rory Philips.
Meanwhile Sunday June 5 now boasts the inclusion of Carte Blanche (a new supergroup comprising of French DJ Mehdi of Ed Banger fame and Riton), French electro duo Logo and Favourite Sons as well as the Trinity Orchestra who will perform Daft Punk's Discovery in it's entirety. A YouTube video of the group performing a medley of the French group at a February performance became a viral hit last week when it clocked up over 100,000 views in a number of days.
Dublin city centre's first multi-staged music festival, Forbidden Fruit is happening on the grounds of IMMA in Kilmainham. Tickets are currently on sale from €49.50 for day tickets and €90 for weekend tickets. Check out the website www.forbiddenfruit.ie for the complete line-up and ticket information.
