Forbidden Fruit starts festival season in style
IT was the first music festival of the season and a successful Forbidden Fruit has set the bar high for this summer's musical line-up.
With a footfall of almost 20,000 over the two days in the grounds of Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin, organisers are already planning a 2014 programme.
Now music aficionados are awaiting a host of upcoming events to see them through the summer in style.
Taking place this month are Sea Sessions in Donegal and Body & Soul in Westmeath, along with Live at the Marquee 2013, which kicks off in Cork on June 12.
Longitude takes place in Dublin's Marley Park on July 19-21 for the first time.
Robbie Williams will play the Aviva on June 14 and Rihanna is there on June 21 and Bruce Springsteen is in Kilkenny on July 27 and 28.
