Since Iâ€™m in London right now, Iâ€™ve been stalking out as much UK music-related news as possible. Unfortunately for me, I leave in May and all the great stuff starts right after.
One of these is theÂ Oxygen Festival â€” For some reason the website still thinks itâ€™s 2008, so hereâ€™s whatâ€™s been announced for the lineup so far:
â€œKings Of Leon, The Killers, Snow Patrol, Blur will headline this yearâ€™s Oxegen Festival with Bloc Party, Razorlight, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Pete Doherty, Elbow, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Script, Katy Perry, White Lies, Fight Like Apes and Pendulum performing throughout the weekend. Lily Allen, Keane, The Specials, Paulo Nutini, Wallis Bird, Digitalism, The Mars Volta, Swedish House Mafia, Miss Kittin And The Hacker, Crookers and Hockey are also being added to the bill.â€ â€” the-fly.co.uk
If youâ€™re in Ireland this summer, definitely check this festival out! I wish I could. Oxegen Festival 2009 will occur at the Punchestown Racecourse in County Kildare Kildare Ireland from July 10th -12th, and general tickets go on sale on March 6th at 8am (GMT).
If anybody knows of any great festivals occurring in the next 2.5 months in the UK, please leave a note about it in the comments!
