Oxegen Festival Update

Last summer I went to the Oxegen Festival in Ireland. Had a fantastic time. I saw a ton of bands and met some really great people. It was probably one of the most memorable weekends of my life.

This year's festival is beginning to take shape. Perhaps not an earth-shattering lineup as of yet, but it looks pretty solid and will surely expand and improve as the date approaches. (There were 80 bands on 5 stages last year)

Saturday, July 9th

Green Day
The Frames
The Prodigy
Snoop Dogg
Queens Of The Stone Age
Erick Morillo
Kaiser Chiefs
Ian Brown

Sunday, July 10th

Foo Fighters
The Killers
New Order
The Streets
Jimmy Eat World
James Brown
The Beautiful South
Josh Ritter

It is certainly a more laid back, less crowded alternative to Glastonbury, T in the Park and the such. I highly recommend it. Read more at the Oxegen Website.

They usually leave it very late for adding bands. The Bravery are provisionally booked for Oxegen. If they can get Bloc Party, I'm there.
