Disco, funk and old-school groovers are the order of the day at Malibu Club. Taking place in the Grand Social, spread over three rooms - it's free in for anyone with a Forbidden Fruit wristband and the tunes will be especially tasty.

Nicolas Jaar

No worries if you're gonna miss Nico out in Kilmainham this evening, because he'll be doing a DJ set in the Button Factory later on. The musical genius has his own hypnotic brand of house music, and you never know just what he might pull out of his record bag - definitely head along to see the master at work.

Church Dublin: Confirmation

It's hard to believe that Church is celebrating its second birthday this weekend. They've been baptised, they've made their communion and now it's time to be confirmed. You can expect things to get particularly rowdy in The Meeting House on Saturday night with free entry all night, and spiritual experiences occuring on the dancefloor. Let us pray...

Subject presents Tama Sumo

Originally beginning as a DJ in Tresor in Berlin back in the early '90s, Tama Sumo is absolutely outstanding. She plays with different moods and atmospheres throughout her sets, releasing a huge amount of energy on to dancefloors across the world so anyone in the Twisted Pepper on Saturday is in for a treat. Vinyl Love with Nialler9 will also be taking place with Stevie G and Claire Beck from TXFM on the decks, so music lovers will be spoilt for choice!

Tensnake at Söder+Ko

Wrapping up the Forbidden Fruit weekend, Tensnake takes to Söder+Ko to play a Dj set, alongside This Greedy Pig DJs. Tensnake's been doing the rounds for the past few years, but he really burst on the scene last year when he collaborated with Nile Rodgers on Love Sublime. Be sure to end your bank holiday bender in style with this absolute belter....

Happy June Bank Holiday!
