Bon Iver has been announced as the first headliner for Forbidden Fruit festival.

The Grammy-winning indie-folk project, led by Justin Vernon, will headline Bank Holiday Monday night with a 90-minute set.

This will be the band's first show in Ireland since selling out The O2 in 2012.

Bon Iver’s third full-length album 22, A Million was released in Ireland in September of this year, hitting the number two spot in the Irish charts and receiving huge critical acclaim.
