The 10th anniversary of Forbidden Fruit will now take place over the Bank Holiday weekend in of June 4-6, 2022.
Dublin music festival Forbidden Fruit Festival has been rescheduled until 2022, it was announced yesterday morning.
In the heart of Dublin city, the event is the capital's first and longest-running city-centre festival - taking place on the incredible grounds of the Irish Museum Of Modern Art at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham.
Forbidden Fruit organisers have stated that "despite all efforts, the current health restrictions make it impossible for the events to take place this year".
The lineup for the previously cancelled 2020 event included Jorja Smith, Peggy Gou, Hot Chip, Fatima Yamaha and Biig Piiig.
Irish independent festival and concert curators POD, who also organise All Together Now and Metropolis music festivals, decided to push the 10th anniversary of the renowned festival until 2022.
"We would like to say a big thanks to all the artists, managers, agents, crew, partners, production companies, and workers who continue to work alongside us through these difficult times," the statement reads. "We all need and deserve a Forbidden Fruit Festival to look forward to and are so grateful for your continued trust and support which will help us create a memorable return."
"We will dance together again! But in the meantime: take good care of yourself and those around you!"
Early Bird tickets for the 2022 edition of the festival are on sale now, starting at €110 for a two-day weekend ticket.
With this summer's easing of restrictions still showing no sign of allowing for large outdoor music events, it looks like festivals will be waiting until mid-2022 to kick off again.
