With Longitude announcing their first string of acts last week, Forbidden Fruit have followed suit with a very tidy announcement featuring some electronic and hip-hop heavyweights.

Set to feature 70 acts over five stages, the festival at Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham –  taking place on the June Bank Holiday weekend, May 39-31 – will see the likes of Run The Jewels (above), Fatboy Slim and Wu-Tang Clan perform. Matador, Ejeca, Joey Badass, Bakermat, Earl Sweatshirt, Booka Shade, Dusky, Mr Scruff and Cyril Hahn will also feature in the festival’s fifth outing.
