Winner of Best New Festival at the Irish Festival Awards for 2011; Forbidden Fruit is returning for another Bank Holiday feast of music, art and fashion. Today marks the announcement of an impressive line-up that will tickle taste buds and have festival goers longing for another bite of Forbidden Fruit. Most notably, Manchester legends NEW ORDER play their first Dublin headline show since 1986 when they close the main stage on the Sunday.

Now extended to three days with five stages, the non-camping festival is a urban fusion of music, art, fashion...and now also comedy; with a new comedy stage being added this year. The music line-up across the three days features iconic as well as up and coming artists, offering a variety of different genres to reflect the diverse modern music tastes of today. Each day's music line-up has a slightly different bend, ranging from an electronic bill on the Saturday to an indie/folk bill on the Monday; with the Sunday bill somewhere between the two!

Together with a fine array of delicious food, creative craft stalls and the usual festival quirks and oddities, Forbidden Fruit is the finest reason to spend a Bank Holiday weekend in Dublin. Tickets for the festival are affordable, starting from just E49.50 for one day tickets, and further discounts for the two and three day options.
Forbidden Fruit Reviews

"A festival like this has been a long time coming, one that combines music, art, fashion and simple good vibes into a two-day, city-based event" - Irish Times

Overall Forbidden Fruit has a pretty nice and relaxed ambience about it, reminiscent of The Electric Picnic in its early days. It could well be a keeper" - Independent

"Finally a festival that has all the best of the bigger festivals with none of the logistical headaches. Super festival" - The Star

"Bulmers is delighted to be partnering with POD to bring you the 2012 Forbidden Fruit Festival, awarded `Best New Festival' in 2011. We look forward to doing our bit to bring great value entertainment to the city with a diverse lineup and lots of new additions to the forbidden experience." - Belinda Kelly, Marketing Manager, Bulmers.
