Young Fathers – Original Stage: Friday 6pm
An explosive set at Longitude 2015 first brought Young Fathers to my full attention, a similar performance this Friday would be the perfect start to Forbidden Fruit 2016.
Pusha T – Original Stage: Friday 7.45pm
A hip-hop artist with a knife-edge sound Pusha T is an uncompromising rap artist who’ll certainly put all his individuality into his performance this weekend.
Katy B – Undergrowth Stage: Friday 9.30pm
Following the release of her third studio album Honey last month Katy B CONTINUES TO MELD R&B, electronica and hip-hop into a sound that is completely of her own making. A must see live artist in any context.

Glam-rock influenced Irish indie band Voxx continue their current momentum with a slot on Forbidden Fruit’s Lighthouse stage.
