30,000 expected at Forbidden Fruit  festival

Preparations are underway for some 30,000 revellers expected at the Forbidden Fruit festival in Dublin this weekend.

Headline acts including New Order and James Vincent McMorrow will serenade, while comedians will entertain in what’s hoped will start the festival season with a bang.

Tickets are still on sale with single day or weekend passes on offer.

**If you're at Bavaria City Racing Dublin this weekend, or at any of the bank holiday festivals around the country, we'd love to hear from you in our live "festival fever" blog on Saturday and Sunday. Just come back to the site at the weekend and you'll see the blog. Happy festival-ing!
