Spotify playlist: Forbidden Fruit this weekend
Hitting the festival in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham but don't know your Arca from your Elbow? No worries, INSIDER has you covered. Here's 10 songs you won't want to miss at Forbidden Fruit this weekend.
The Swedish band have become keen collaborators in the last few years. Their own synth-pop music has grown in stature as a result and as a live band, they're one of the best around.
What is billed as a solo project of Joseph Mount playing breezy indie-pop music comes alive in technicolour on a live stage.
The Flaming Lips
Do You Realise?
The best and most poignant song the Oklahoma band have ever written. Their live show is acknowledged as life-affirming.
Bed Of Nails
These indie-art rockers have become one of the shining examples of intelligent music. The percussion on this track from their 2011 Smother album is worth commendation alone.
Keep It Healthy
These ladies make rock that sounds like grunge, a bedroom jam and the future all at once, all wrapped up in captivating melodies.
No Train To Cavan
This diminutive Cavan singer comes bearing a distinctly Irish lilt and slant on her folk songs. She's very funny too.
Do The Astral Plane
Steven Ellison's electronic music contains elements of jazz, futuristic electronic sounds and hip-hop percussion.
The New Life
This Belfast band are the finest purveyors of post-punk this island has. Party like it's 1979.
And So I Watch You From Afar
The Stay Golden
Also from Belfast, these heavy-rockers pack some euphoria into their punch.
Bring The Noise
The long-standing politicised rap powerhouse led by Chuck D and Flava Flav are still turning out relevant live sets.
