    Foo Fighters, Prodigy and Ian Brown are all confirmed. And apparently The Killers have just signed up. What other acts would people like to see this year? Here's a few to get the thread spinning: Kings Of Convenience Black Keys Tom Baxter Bloc Party The Subways The Waifs And You WIll Know Us By The Trail Of Our Dead The Czars Ben Harper Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Interpol Grateful Dead Modest Mouse

    velvet revolver, the datsuns, stoat, mad capsul markets, any band mike patton is involved in, specifically tomahawk, the roots, gwen steffani, incubus, and that below average metal band that did the versionof dancing queen on "you're a big eejit for getting involved" cos i reckon live show would be funny. Super Furry Animals would be great too.

    Foo Fighters, the Prodigy and Brown?..it all seems so 1997. Let's throw on Chumbawumba and Kula Shaker and have done with it!

    AC/DC - are they not doing Slane? Expect Velvet Revolver in support for that one. Revive metal!

    Ah, the album Nada Surf released in late 2003/2003 was nothing short of fantastic. I seriously recommed you pick it up. its called "let go". Seriously, its class They played whelans in 2002 or was it 2003, anyway it was definitely one of the best if not THE best gig i was ever at in whelans or any other venue as a matter of fact. They were f**kin amazing.

    The Zutons, Republic Of Loose and Michael Franti. All were amazing. And Kings Of Leon because they weren't superb last year but I reckon with the new album out now they would be on top form. Although, one of the best things about festivals is that you discover great acts that you might never have heard of.

    Saw Nada Surf play Friday morning at Glasto2003. We stayed for 10 minutes, then went back to bed. Couldn't believe how boring MOR they'd become. *YAWN*

    I would have loved to seen Buck 65 but some bright spark decided to put him on at the same time as the Rapture. One my biggest grievances with Oxegen/Witnness is there lack of hip-hop acts. I can't understand this, especially when you consider how well received both the Wu Tang Clan were last year and the Roots the year before. In terms of hip hop acts I'd most like to see this summer I'd have to go for Gang Starr, Edan, J-Live, Biz Markie, Del The Funky Homosapien, J-Zone, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, De La Soul, The Beatnuts, Kool Keith, Public Enemy, Nas, Blackalicious, RJD2, MF Doom, Common, Roots Manuva, Pharoahe Monch, Outkast, Jurassic 5, KRS-One, The Beastie Boys, Atmosphere, Sage Francis or Breakestra. Although I'd welcome back The Roots, Buck 65 or any other member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Alternatively they should a stick a really good turntablist or Breaks DJ (Z-Trip, Shadow, Cut Chemist, Beat Junkies, A-Track, Q-Bert etc) in the dance tent. Or they should just do what Glastonbury did and book the Godfather.

    ... One my biggest grievances with Oxegen/Witnness is there lack of hip-hop acts... not being smart or anything but i think its mainly perceived crowd control issues that prevent rap artists getting in. look at the number of arrests at any homelands gathering versus that of arrests at, say metallica or ozzfest. unfortunatly hip hop acts attract alot of the same crowd that go to hmoelands. anyone who saw the streets a few years ago at witness must surely understand why hip hop acts arent popular with organisers.

Homelands was a trance/house/techno festival with absolutely no hip-hop acts. Creamfields had 1 hip-hop act (outkast, 2001) that i can think of. There was zilch crowd trouble at either. loads of drug arrests but no crowd trouble. there were hiphop acts at that electric picnic thing last summer and again no trouble. one of the biggest openair shows in ireland in 2004 was eminem - again little trouble bar the traffic chaos afterwards. similarly, no trouble at arena shows from 50 cents and kayne west. hip-hop acts played at 2 or 3 different feiles back in the 1990s and again, the revolution did not happen most hip-hop shows in ireland are small-scale, independent gigs which have more trouble getting people in than dealing with troublesome elements in the audience. the reason why irish hip-hop gigs seems to be associated with trouble stems back to a fugees show in 1995 or 1996. there was a load of moshing and hassle when one of the band leapt into the audience at the point. this happened the same day that an inquest was held into the death of an audience member at a smashing pumpkins show and there was a lot of media focus on the fugees show. as a result, MCD unofficially decided not to promote any more hip-hop shows, a stance which continued until they saw that they could actually make money from hip-hop and so they got back in the game,

    Buck was great but I saw him 3 times last year and Oxegen was the poorest due to him having such a short set.
