Here are the stage times for Saturday and Sunday!
My pick of the bands to see on Saturday at Forbidden Fruit was Swim Deep
Forbidden Fruit agree!
Forbidden Fruit Bus
After sets from Swim Deep, Kormacs Big Band and Health, James Blake was the most popular on the Main Stage. However, his set was interrupted by a crowd dispersing shower.
IAMMAIWHOAMI at the Undergrowth Stage
Patrick McDonnell had one of the best audience reactions of the day on the Comedy Stage.
Meanwhile Crystal Castles got the Saturday night party started on the Main Stage. #smokeandstrobes
Neon Neon brought disco fever to Forbidden Fruit.
Festival headliners Kasabian gathered quite the crowd to the Main Stage.
One of Saturdays best acts was Dublin dance / electro group Le Galaxie. The Lighthouse Stage was transformed into a euphoric ballroom with the audience loving every minute of it.
Daughter were excellent on the Main Stage. Chilling guitar echoes that would make anyone’s hair stand up.
Al Porter made light of socially awkward situations in the Comedy Tent
Toro Y Moi were pretty good in the Undergrowth Stage
Bondax played some beautiful remixes in the Lighthouse Stage
Daithi livened things up at the Vodafone Centre Stage
Everything Everything turned everything up a notch. Opening with chart favourite Cough Cough and playing some new and old songs before ending with latest single Don’t Try
Chic were full of hits on the main stage. Nile Rodgers made sure to the tell the crowd “Don’t think Chic is a cover band, because we’ve been writing and playing these songs from the start.” The set featured songs that Rodgers and the group wrote for the likes of Sister Sledge, David Bowie and Madonna.
The crowd were a bit subdued at the Comedy Tent, but there still some great performances there.
Four Tet’s set was covered in so much smoke, it wasn’t possible to see anyone on stage for around 5 minutes at the Undergrowth Stage. Here’s the evidence!
Although it took a while, Primal Scream eventually got the crowd in full swing.
For his first time in Ireland, Woodkid played an amazing set with the help of a fantastic lightshow.
Daphni had the Lighthouse Stage jammed, finishing off a good day for the stage that was curated by Hidden Agenda.
Standout set of the day had to be Chic on the Main Stage, which was evident by the large crowd on the hill overlooking the stage.
It seemed to a successful weekend for those involved in Forbidden Fruit. Happy festival goers entered and exited the Dublin 8 venue with little hassle. No doubt those who attended this weekend will be counting down the days to the June 2014 for next years event.
