FORBIDDEN FRUIT FESTIVAL COVID-19 STATEMENT
Following the announcement Tuesday from the Irish Government extending restrictions on licensed events into the summer. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Forbidden Fruit Festival.
The whole Forbidden Fruit Team were extremely excited to celebrate our 10th anniversary with you all, with one of our best and most diverse line-ups to date. We will be back stronger than ever on June Bank Holiday Weekend 5th - 6th 2021 - for what will be a special celebration and back to the summer we know best.
In these unprecedented times the health and safety of you and your family, as well as the wider community is of paramount importance to us. We all must continue to follow the guidance from the HSE and our government and to do all we can to help frontline workers.
In 2011 we brought you Dublin’s first multi-stage music festival, and Forbidden Fruit became a fixture, the longest-running city centre festival and one that marked the beginning of the summer. One of the keys to Forbidden Fruit over the last decade has been you, our amazing audience, and a connection to the city and the scene we all love. It’s your support, enthusiasm and love for music that has made the festival what it is. We thank you so much for this - and hope that you will continue to support us through these unprecedented times.
The cancellation of this year's festival - along with the closure of venues and cultural events will no doubt have severe implications on everyone in the industry - from Irish artists, technicians, crew, suppliers, trader, charity and media partners, and all those who play their part to make events like this happen. For Forbidden Fruit alone we had over 50 local artists who were yet to be announced for this year’s festival, the implications are far-reaching.
Your ticket refund is available from the original point of purchase. If you booked online or by phone, Ticketmaster will process your refund directly back to you via your original payment method, which will take up to seven working days to process.
We look forward to welcoming you back next year and thank you for your continued support.
Until then, Stay safe, stay home & stay positive.
From all of us involved in the Forbidden Fruit Team
