JUNE BANK HOL­I­DAY WRAP See list­ings for de­tails An­other bank hol­i­day week­end and, hope­fully, an­other few days of halfway de­cent weather. The big­gie this week­end is Dublin’s For­bid­den Fruit; we re­call last year’s event, which was rain­sod­den but ex­cel­lent.

This year’s line-up is de­cent enough, but FF isn’t the only event on that snags the in­ter­est. Down Cork way there are two mu­sic fes­ti­vals of note: in the city cen­tre is the Cork Stout Fes­ti­val 2013 bash, which fea­tures mu­sic trails as well as on-site gigs at the premises of Beamish & Craw­ford to­day (Sea­sick Steve) and to­mor­row (Deloren­tos). Out­side the city, com­menc­ing to­mor­row, we have gigs from the likes of Royseven, Frank & Wal­ters and Ryan Sheri­dan, each of who per­form as part of Bandon Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Up north in Ballyshan­non, Co Done­gal is the an­nual Rory Gal­lagher Fes­ti­val, which fea­tures across the week­end blues and rock acts such as The An­swer, Nine Be­low Zero (above), Pat McManus Band, Sin­ner Boy and Band of Friends.

Will the sun shine? Fin­gers crossed. TONYCLAYTON-LEA
