Fontaines D.C. added to Forbidden Fruit

The fast-rising Dublin punks are everywhere right now.

Fontaines D.C. are the talk of the Irish music scene at the moment.


The Dublin band recently appeared on Jimmy Fallon's chat show as they look to crack America, while they've also popped up on Soccer A.M. in recent times, too.

With a wave of buzz behind them, two upcoming sold out hometown headline slots at Vicar Street to look forward to, and a debut album getting rave reviews, things are going very well indeed.

There's even been the odd backlash or two, the sign of any successful rock and roll outfit.

If you're looking to see what all of the fuss is about and are also planning on hitting up this year's Forbidden Fruit festival, we have some good news.


The five-piece have just been added to the bill for the Kilmainham bash, which takes place on the June Bank Holiday weekend (1 - 3) - limited tickets available here.

Their Monday slot will mark the band's only outdoor Dublin show of the year.

You'll also be able to catch them at All Together Now, if you're Waterford-bound in August.

Fontaines' addition comes at a bittersweet cost, though, with the sad news that the previously announced folk duo of First Aid Kit will not be performing at the festival, having been forced to pull all of their summer shows.


Citing "unforeseen medical circumstances", Klara and Johanna Söderberg noted their disappointment at missing out and promised fans that they will return to Ireland again soon.
