Dublin city centre’s multi-stage music and arts festival, Frobidden Fruit, is set to return for its seventh instalment on the June Bank Holiday weekend, from the 3rd - 5th June.
The spectacular grounds of Irish Museum of Modern Art will once again play host to the hotly anticipated three-day festival, which has become firmly fixed in the gig-goers calendar as the grand-opening to the festival season, and the official start of the summer. 
This year, an incredible evening of music will be headlined and curated by Bon Iver, with special guests Fying Lotus, Lisa Hannigan, The Staves, Gordi & Paul Thomas Sanders, plus many more...
Set across four stages (Original Stage, Undergrowth, Lighthouse, Someplace Else), offering a wide selection of different styles of music, to suit all tastes, You can expect the usual fruity cocktail of great cutting-edge sound, comedy, art, good food, and festival fun. And we’ll see the return of the ever-popular Bulmer’s Lounge.
