Forbidden Fruit announces new stage, more main acts

Forbidden Fruit Festival have announced a new addition, The Live Live (Workshop Stage), a brand new collective formed to showcase the very best in up and coming live performances.  Officially launching Thursday, 21 May in The Button Factory with RY X & Frank Wiedemann’s new band The Howling, they follow up a week later at Forbidden Fruit 2015 with a stage featuring the likes of the Fatima & The Eglo Band, folk-electronica duo Whilk & Misky, MC Melodee, Dublin electronic vocalist Blooms and dream-pop trio Sleep Thieves.  State favourites Rusangano Family, folk rockers Heroes In Hiding and finally, the eclectic stylings of Rocstrong.

Plus, two more main acts have been announced for the festival, Floating Points and the most excellent student-led Trinity Orchestra, who will be performing on Saturday, May 30th and Sunday, May 31st, respectively.  Have a look at Trinity Orchestra playing tracks from Gorillaz Demon Days LP, which they’ll be recreating at Forbidden Fruit.  It’s great –
