There's more exciting news on the Forbidden Fruit front with the addition of The Wire star Idris Elba and Odd Future maverick Earl Sweatshirt to the RHK bash.
As well as his stellar acting talents, Elba is also a DJ of some renown and will bring a selection of brilliant house sounds on the Saturday of the June bank holiday weekend. The following day, meanwhile, sees the arrival of Sweatshirt, a firm favourite with Irish audiences having played a series of barnstorming shows here both solo and as part of the all-conquering Odd Future collective.
In HP Towers, we're also excited by the announcement of a solo live performance on Saturday by Floating Points, the electro-jazz maverick who's a firm favourite chez Thom Yorke.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg with the new announcements, with other additions including Stephan Bodzin Live, Novelist, Agoria Live and Tensnake (Saturday); George Fitzgerald Live, SG Lewis, DJ Seinfeld, Saoirse and Books Brass (Sunday); and David Keeran, Nialler9 and Sing Along Social (Sunday).
It's all shaping up to be one of the bashes of the year in Kilmainham from June 2-4!
