    Check out our own Una's blog on oxegen line up

    http://unarocks.blogspot.com/2007/02/is-this-oxegen-line-up.html

    Interpol and Bloc and the artics would be great, but its a slightly uninspiring line up. Ive not yet decided whether to catch any of them this year or to just head off into the sunset for a foreign one...

    I got an early bird cause I knew i'd probably end up going. they're bound to have 4 or 5 good acts that i'd see if they did their own show in dublin so why not see them at oxegen

    Because I don't like having a topless sunburnt bogboy in a pink cowboy hat, on his first weekend away on the lash, pissing onto my tent.

    Bjork and Tori Amos and Chemical Brothers for ze Picnic methinks. Basically every giant band in the universe is playing Oxegen though. I heard they're using new technology to ressurect Kurt Cobain to headline the new band tent on Sunday.

    we could go down the "how electric picnic f**ked up what was a potentially great unique festival" route again like we did last year... by either pandering to commercial tastes too much or by having the wrong people choosing the bands, that's exactly what Aiken / POD did in 2006... and it'll be worse this year... meanwhile oxegen are moving slightly more left field having learnt a lesson... and hey presto - we have two generic looking lineups (even if EP is a much better vibe for the moment)

    The line up for EP was great last year. The festival itself was a stunning success. Oxegen might have a better line up on paper than GLasto but I'd know where I would rather me.

    You only get to see a couple of bands per day. Most of the headliners are going to clash

    I was gonna go for one day to see Arcade Fire, but it'd cost about €150 in total, which is crazy and would pay for a 3 day festival in Europe. Nah.

    I love this blurb for Baby Shambles: "Will he or won't he� Whether or not the bad boy of rock will bring his supermodel girlfriend to this year's OXEGEN is yet to be seen but his band are guaranteed to put on a show you won't want to miss"

    Says a lot, I think...
