    Default OXEGEN FESTIVAL 2008

    Can anyone tell me how as an american I can purchase the early bird tickets? Also, what area is the best to camp in? I see there are so many choices. Any tips hints or clues about this fest would be great. I am a dumb american who will be in ireland during Oxegen and I need help. Like a message board or something would be good too!

    So please tell me what you know about this fest!

    Interesting, so the presale is over and regular tickets go on sale later. I can't imagine how much they will cost. 3 days insted of 2 this year apparently.

    OXEGEN.ie can exclusively reveal that Kings of Leon are confirmed to play OXEGEN 2008, after you voted them the band you most want to see in our festival poll.
    Okay, that's just sad.
    9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/17 Karen O at Masonic Lodge, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/20 Chvrches @ Tower Theatre, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    so I guess that's a confirmation that the other bands included in the poll are not playing??? or do they have a poll for the most wanted and then get several of them despite the results?

    Dude, I have no clue. This is a drunken muddy fest. I was reading that you are allowed to bring in as much alcohol as you want. both into the fest and the campiong area. Just no glass. But then I read that you can't bring it the stage or something so I have a lot more research to do.

    So yeah.. Aphex is the whore fest this year in Europe. Here, Jack Johnson.

    OXEGEN 2008 today announces the addition of Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip, French dance supremos Justice, Aphex Twin and the genre crossing Alabama 3 who are all set to play this year’s 3 day festival, taking place from 11th-13th July 2008 at Punchestown Racecourse, Naas, County Kildare (subject to licence).

    With R.E.M., Kings Of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, The Fratellis, Interpol, Counting Crows, The Raconteurs and Ian Brown already confirmed, OXEGEN 08 is living up to its billing as the ‘Greatest Rock n Roll Weekend of the Year’.

    Dance pioneers the Chemical Brothers have led the way in bringing intelligent dance music into mainstream music culture. With hits such as Hey Boy, Hey Girl, Galvanise and Setting Sun the duo have forged a partnership that produces hit after hit of irresistible rock infused dance genius.

    Electronica sensations, Hot Chip are renowned for their unique sound. Their 2006 hit Over and Over had dance floors throughout Europe buzzing for months and this year’s Ready For the Floor is already doing the same in clubs throughout Ireland.

    Another act fast making a name for themselves are Justice. The French duo known for 2007’s hit D.A.N.C.E and the 2004 collaboration with Simian on We Are Your Friends are also renowned for their remixes of artists such as Franz Ferdinand and Klaxons.

    Aphex Twin (aka Richard D James) is the alpha male of electronica, an artist who has constantly pushed the boundaries of electronic music. His albums “Selected Ambient Works” volumes I and II revolutionised the genre fusing epic soundscapes with dark beats and bass lines and the video for “Windowlicker” is one of the most disturbing music videos ever produced.

    Alabama 3 pride themselves in producing upbeat music to party to. The band makes music for the sheer love of it and as a result their live shows are eclectic and entertaining. Their performance at OXEGEN this year is sure to wow the crowds.

    With respect, I don't think you would care too much for the hooliganism that goes on at this (by all accounts, I have never been). Here in the US, the worst you have to put up with is crappy toilets and Jack Johnson. Over there, it's a little different. Same goes for fests such as T in the park.

    Electric Picnic is another fest over there and they make a concerted effort to keep the skangers out by excluding all under 18's (young kids with families excepted). I know someone who has gone and it's well organised. The lineups are also excellent.

    I would look at that as a better option.
