The festival for 2021 was due to take place over the June Bank Holiday weekend.

The Forbidden Fruit Festival has been rescheduled for 2022, it has been announced this morning.

Publishing the news from their official social channels, Forbidden Fruit has said that "despite all efforts, the current health restrictions make it impossible for the events to take place this year".

Irish independent festival and concert curators POD, who also organise All Together Now and Metropolis music festivals, has decided to push this year's festival until 2022. The 10th anniversary of the Dublin city music festival will now take place over the Bank Holiday weekend of June next year.

The statement continues: "We would like to say a big thanks to all the artists, managers, agents, crew, partners, production companies, and workers who continue to work alongside us through these difficult times.

"We all need and deserve a Forbidden Fruit Festival to look forward to and are so grateful for your continued trust and support which will help us create a memorable return for our 10th anniversary on the Bank Holiday Weekend June 4 & 5, 2022.

"We will dance together again! But in the meantime: take good care of yourself and those around you!"

Early Bird tickets for the 2022 edition of the festival are on sale now, starting at €110 for a two-day weekend ticket.

The lineup for the previously cancelled 2020 event included Jorja Smith, Peggy Gou, Hot Chip, Fatima Yamaha and Biig Piiig.
