Forbidden Fruit – Bon Iver Announces Special Collaboration

BON IVER

What do Lisa Hannigan, Flying Lotus, Danny Brown, The Staves, Paul Thomas Saunders, Gordi, William Tyler and Velvet Negroni all have in common?

They’ve all been hand-picked by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon to perform at Forbidden Fruit on Monday, 5th June.  This is an incredibly unique event and the only festival day that Bon Iver will curate in Europe this year.

To top off this superb day of music, Monday will be headlined by Bon Iver with what promises to be an amazing 90-minute set – the band’s first show in Ireland in over five years since selling out The O2 in 2012.

 That’s not all we’ve got! A rich part of Ireland’s cultural heritage is the music session, lots of musicians getting together to jam. On that note, we are so excited to let you know what else we’ve got in store for you on Monday…

 5:15pm at the Outcider Stage will be THE place to be as members of Bon Iver and some of the other performers that day will get together for a jam session – and YOU can be there! The jam session will last for 40 minutes and this is a chance to see some of the finest musicians getting together to do what they love.

 This time next week you could be getting ready to head into the beautiful grounds of the Irish Museum Of Modern Art at The Royal Hospital Kilmainham. You’ll be spoiled for choice, with a brilliant line-up curated by and headlined by the stunning Bon Iver, a one-off collaborative jam session, a giant inflatable church and Disco Dodgems, madcap Bingo Loco, gorgeous food, ice cold cocktails and lots lots more.
