5 Things You Need To Know If You're Hitting Up Forbidden Fruit This Weekend
Forbidden Fruit's a bit of a beauty really, you get all the fun of a festival without having to trek an hour or two down the country and you can tumble into your own bed every evening. Taking place over three days this year, instead of two, we've drawn up a nifty little list of all the info you're likely to need for the weekend ahead.
Music ends at 10.45pm each evening.
- Easy Peasy: Get yourself to Abercrombie on Dame Street and hop on the free Bulmers Bus. They'll be running every half hour from the time gates open each day. They will be outside the Main Gate after the festival every night too.
- Luas: Take the Red Line from town to Heuston and it's a 5 minute walk
- Dublin Bus:
123 from O'Connell St/Dame St
51B, 78A from Aston Quay 26 from Wellington Quay
51, 79 from Aston Quay
90 Dart Feeder Bus from Connolly and Tara Street Stations to Heuston Station
- Taxi: Ask to go to James Street and Bow Lane, that's as far as they can get.
The weather is not promised to be fantastic, so make sure you're dressed accordingly (unless you wanna go home soaked and miserable halfway through the day).
One of these should do the trick:
Must See Acts:
Friday: Nicolas Jaar
Saturday: Floating Points, Booka Brass Band, Fatima and Eglo Live Band, Jamie xx, Wu Tang Clan
Sunday: East India Youth, Run The Jewels, Booka Shade, Tensnake
