Forbidden Fruit festival this Saturday and Sunday to feature Aphex Twin

Aphex Twin, playing at Forbidden Fruit on Sunday
ONE of the most intriguing new music festivals of recent years kicks off this June Bank Holiday weekend, featuring headliners The Flaming Lips and Aphex Twin - the latter described as “the most inventive and influential figure in contemporary electronic music” - who grew up in England but was born in Limerick, a little known fact of musical lore.

The ‘Forbidden Fruit’ festival takes place this coming Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, on the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, in Dublin, the first multi staged music festival to take place in the capital city.
Sponsored by Bulmers and run by POD, the site for the gig is to be set up in the shape of an apple and is billed as a “collaborative fusion of music, art and fashion”. Also featuring on the eclectic and exciting line-up are Battles, Wild Beats, Erol Alkan, Jape, Caribou, Jamie XX, Ham Sandwich and many more.
