Dublin’s Forbidden Fruit Festival 2017: selling fast

Forbidden Fruit is back with their seventh instalment of this unique three-day festival in the Irish Museum Of Modern Art at The Royal Hospital, Kilmainham.

June Bank Holiday Weekend, 3rd – 5th June

For the second week running the festival has announced part of their bill and has issued a reminder that Saturday and Sunday tickets SOLD OUT for the second year running last year, so the advice is to grab them while you can.

Amongst the new additions this week, Forbidden Fruit are welcoming Chilean music producer, Nicolas Jaar for his first live show in Ireland since 2014. His second LP, Sirens, was released last year to critical acclaim, with Pitchfork calling it ‘awesome, transcendent, timeless’.

London rapper Giggs has collaborations with Drake under his belt – and was invited as a special guest at Drake’s three arena show. His 2016 album Landlord hit the #2 spot in the UK album charts – so fans will be excited to catch him live at Forbidden Fruit 2017.

The festival will also be bringing UK producer and composer, Danny L Harle to the party.  With some serious hits under his belt, most notably releases last year that included vocals from Caroline Polachek (Chairlift) and a single featuring Carly Rae Jepsen.

Peggy Gou is a Berlin-based Korean artist. Through a regular stream of high quality mixes she’s begun to turn heads in underground circles. Sitting somewhere between Detroit, London and Berlin in sound, her DJ sets are a assured, kinetic combination of dark, pulsing house and techno, broken beats and abstract compositions. She is a unique artist and promises to be something special in a live setting.

For a brand new live act not yet a year old, Hybrasil has been busy. With a series of live performances on the legendary Space Terrace last summer, alongside acts such as techno-midwife Juan Atkins and Visionquest’s Ryan Crossan and Lee Curtis, as well as live performances with Sven Vath and a performance at Jeff Mills sold-out orchestra show in Bord Gais Energy Theatre, there has been no time for Hybrasil to learn to walk or talk in its first year on earth. It’s been all about the techno. With fans like Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dave Clarke and Alan Fitzpatrick, you’re going to want to check Hybrasil out to see what all the fuss is about…

The festival will also feature Trinity Orchestra. This 100-strong orchestra is the only student run orchestra in the country – and they’ve received tonnes of acclaim for their incredible covers of artists like Sufjan Stevens, Gorrilaz and Daft Punk. This year, they’re paying homage to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It’s going to be epic.
