The first artists to perform at next summer's festival have been revealed, and it's absolutely incredible.
Belfast-born, London-based duo BICEP (Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson) released their critically acclaimed second album, Isles on 22 January 2021 via Ninja Tune. The record reached No.2 in the Official UK Album Charts, with the duo going on to be nominated for two BRIT Awards. Bicep’s globe-trotting sound was forged as their own rapid ascent through the musical ranks began after starting their legendary FeelMyBicep blog in 2008. They have raised the roof at the likes of Primavera, Coachella and Glastonbury and now turn their sights to Kilmainham.
New Zealand star Lorde will play Ireland for the first time at Forbidden Fruit 2022. The artist and poet has sold over 12 million albums worldwide and has racked up over 10 billion streams globally. Her debut, Pure Heroine went triple-platinum, won two Grammys, and spawned the international juggernaut single 'Royals' and follow up 'Team'. She released her second full-length studio album Melodrama in 2017, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and earning her a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammys. She has recently made her highly anticipated return with critically acclaimed new single 'Solar Power' and third full-length studio album of the same name in August 2021.
Returning for their first outdoor live Dublin show since 2013, Forbidden Fruit bring you Hot Chip. In a career that has already produced seven albums, an infinite number of mixes and borderline devotional live performances, Hot Chip have claimed the salvation of the sweet spot of the dancefloor as their own. Headlining All Together Now in 2019, this is their Forbidden Fruit debut.
Elsewhere, the incredible Peggy Gou will return to a rapt audience after making her Irish festival debut at Forbidden Fruit in 2017. One of the biggest names in dance music today, the Berlin-based South Korean DJ and producer now returns as one of our 2022 headliners.
South London multi-instrumentalist Tom Misch fuses low-slung hip-hop beats, glittering disco, and noodling jazz instrumentation. Misch is a bona fide sensation, harnessing five million monthly listeners on Spotify and billion streams across his catalogue.
Australian singer/songwriter Nick Murphy is known for crafting atmospheric electronic productions under his real name as well as the moniker Chet Faker. His debut full-length, Built on Glass was a major success, earning him platinum certification in his home country. 2019's Run Fast Sleep Naked, later reviving the Chet Faker project for the 2021 full-length Hotel Surrender.
Australian mixing maestros The Avalanches, Floating Points (aka Sam Shepherd), producer Folamour and Dublin rapper Kojaque (Kevin Smith) are also topping the bill. Co-founder of the Irish label and collective Soft Boy Records, 2016 saw the release of Kojaque's first mixtape, Sunday Roast. This was followed in 2018 by his critically acclaimed Deli Daydreams, which was nominated for the Choice Music Prize. In 2021 he released Town’s Dead, which went top 5 in the album charts. This November sees Kojaque performing a fully sold out tour across the UK, IRE and EU.
New York-born Puerto Rican MC, singer, songwriter, entrepreneur, style icon, actress, and activist Princess Nokia; soulful R&B act Biig Piig; London-based, Grammy-nominated producer Jayda G; Franky Wah; Manchester-born singer-songwriter Pip Millett, Dublin's own Gemma Dunleavy and spoken word, hip-hop star Malaki will take to the stage in 2022.
