FOR­BID­DEN FRUIT Royal Hospi­tal, Kil­main­ham Dublin Satur­day/Sun­day 2pm¤110/¤59.50 for­bid­den­fruit.ie

It’s the first ma­jor open air fes­ti­val of the year, and the line-up is, shall we say, a fo­cused one that might not overly ap­peal to the lis­ten­ers of Q102. That said, we know there’s melody and ac­ces­si­bil­ity aplenty here – you just need to re­tune your au­ral re­cep­tors some­what to the sonic ex­plo­rations of Young Knives, F But­tons, BellX1, And So I Watch You From Afar, The Flam­ing Lips, Lit­tle Dragon, Wild Beasts and Warpaint (above).

There’s a most in­trigu­ing vis­ual side to pro­ceed­ings, too, with Fly­ing Lo­tus (aka Steven El­li­son) bring­ing his ac­claimed 3D live show to Ire­land for the first time. Aside from the sound+vi­sion treats (and these also in­clude Dáithí, Nils Frahm, Kid Karate, Vann Mu­sic, The Range, Gold Panda, Lisa O’Neill, Girls Names, New Se­cret Weapon and To­tally Enor­mous Ex­tinct Di­nosaurs) For­bid­den Fruit also has com­edy (in­clud­ing Colm O’Re­gan, John Col­leary, Kevin Gildea and Andrew Stan­ley) and the Hot Press In­ter­view Tent. Crunchy, tasty, lips­mack­ing, etc.
