Over three decades the lifelong friends that are the members of ELBOW have created one of the most remarkable stories in British contemporary music. We are thrilled to have this incredible band headlining the Monday of Forbidden Fruit 2019.

Next up it’s the turn of MURA MASA, the stage name of British producer Alex Crossan. Last year he headlined the debut All Together Now and having collaborated with Christine & The Queens, Damon Albarn, ASAP Rocky, it’s been quite the year for Crossan so […]

At the end of May, Snow Patrol released Wildness, their first album in seven years. Wildness taps into something raw and primitive. Lead-singer and songwriter Gary Lightbody says of the album: “There are many types of wildness, but I think it can be distilled into two: the wildness of the modern age, all its confusion, illogic and alienation and a more ancient wildness. Something primal, alive and beautiful that speaks to our true connectivity, our passion, our love, our communion with nature and each other. This is the kind of wildness the album is centered around. The loss of it. Trying to reconnect with it. To remember it.” To celebrate the release of Wildness, Snow Patrol debuted new music videos for A Youth Written in Fire, Life and Death, Wild Horses and A Dark Switch. The band has previously released music videos for Empress, What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get?, Life on Earth and Don’t Give In.

The novel follows the life and thoughts of Leopold Bloom and a host of other characters – real and fictional – from 8am on 16 June 1904 through to the early hours of the following morning. Celebrations often include dressing up like characters from the book and in clothes that would have been the style of the era. One of the hallmark fancy dress items of Bloomsday is the straw boater hat. Celebrations come in many different forms like readings, performances and visiting the places and establishments referenced in the book.

Versatile is Eskimo Supreme and Casper Walsh, two inner city Dublin natives rhyming and visualising the humorous and grittier aspects of life as young run arounds. Tales are vividly told in their songs like stealing dogs as a means of income, to the bleak scenes of an after party, all the while maintaining their jovial manner. Since 2014 with the group’s first uploads to their highly subscribed YouTube channel, OUTBURST, they have organically found mass appeal throughout Ireland and beyond, creating a close to cultish following amongst their fans.

A whole new audience discovered the thrill of seeing and hearing an orchestra in full flight and who better to introduce them than 2FM’s Jenny Greene with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, voted the World’s Favourite Orchestra in an international poll in 2015. They were the standout act of Electric Picnic 2016, blowing the roof off a mobbed Rankin’s Wood.

They topped the list for many as the highlight of the weekend.

Irish comedian, actor, writer and presenter Tommy Tiernan confirms new Paddy Crazy Horse shows for April 2019. As if receiving instructions from a strange and distant star, Tommy Tiernan always takes to the stage refusing to take anything seriously. The political and the personal are all up for grabs as the only goal of the evening is laughter. Let our struggles be mocked and our cares abandoned. Allow yourself be guided by a language loving and theatrical performer with a half thought out plan, no professional qualifications and a mouth with a mind of its own. Can you trust him? To be silly, yes. To behave, no. Like a bus conductor standing in front of an orchestra with a spoon in one hand and air horn in the other what could possibly go wrong?

Mixing the traditional Irish folk sounds with the (then) emerging sounds of rock’n’roll, Christy Moore emerged in the late 1960s as a shining new voice in Irish music. Since then he has carved out an extremely consistent career, both as a solo artist and with his bands, Planxty and Moving Hearts. Credited as a major influence on artists such as U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor, Christy continues to tour and record and the dynamism of his performances are not to be missed.

Damien Dempsey’s voice is Dublin yet wholly distinctive, almost clichéd to say it, but he is part of a rich bloodline of Irish singers from Luke Kelly to Ronnie Drew, Christy Moore to Andy Irvine. Their kin outside Ireland are Springsteen and Guthrie, Dylan and Marley. On his latest album Almighty Love, Dempsey’s sense of place reaches out beyond Donaghmede and North Bull Island, where he first performed in public as a teenager, across the Irish Sea and further afield.

His past catalogue also includes the phenomenal success of 1997’s White Ladder (seven million copies sold), one of three UK No.1 albums, with records that became ubiquitous and others that needed to be sought out to be heard.

Formed in Bristol in 2011, IDLES have released two albums. The rockers’ debut was Brutalism in 2017. Joy As an Act of Resistance came out in August 2018 and is their attempt to be vulnerable and encourage vulnerability. They’ve even stripped back the songs and the lyrics in an attempt to bare flesh and allow each other to breathe and to celebrate differences. IDLES’ new record ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ debuted at no.5 in the UK charts, breaking Rough Trade’s all-time record for most pre-orders and sales in day. It is currently the no.1 best reviewed record of 2018 (average rating of 88 across 25 reviews) at Album Of The Year and in the Top 10 on Metacritic. The band saw not only singles but the album itself A-listed at 6 Music and earned major features, amongst others, with the likes of Q, Mojo, The Guardian and covers with DIY, Loud & Quiet, So Young and NME. They’ve arrived internationally too with only last week NPR Music declaring “I am an IDLES addict. It’s like mainlining an uplifting and unifying assault on nationalism, racism, intolerance, and class inequality.” The band won Best Breakthrough at the Q Awards last […]
