As if five stages of music, comedy and the spoken word weren’t enough, Bulmers has only gone and added a sixth stage to this year’s Forbidden Fruit Festival in support of immensely talented, emerging Irish artists.
In what is set to become an annual feature at Forbidden Fruit, the Bulmers Live Stage – One Hundred Percent Irish Artists is a new platform that will play host to 19 artists over the three days, promoting the best in new Irish music.
Belinda Kelly of Bulmers said, “We’ve been involved with Forbidden Fruit from the very start and each year we try to bring something new to the festival that is inherently Bulmers in nature. For Bulmers, being Irish is a badge of honour, so we really wanted to do something that would support and showcase up-coming Irish talent with a bit of edge. Many of these artists will be already well known on the music scene but will not have had an opportunity to perform at a festival the size of Forbidden Fruit. We’re just giving them a new platform and a means to reach new audiences, and we are really excited at the prospect of enjoying 19 festival acts over the Bank Holiday weekend.”
