Oxegen Line-Up // 2011
While I’m posting about festivals I’m not really that bothered about going to, here’s the line-up for this summer’s Oxegen, due to take place from July 7-10.
I’d be interested in seeing My Chemical Romance again since they were disappointing at the O2 last month (read my interview with Mikey Way and Frank Iero here) and Weezer could be interesting. The headliners are very unimaginative, though – I mean how many times do we have to see Foo Fighters and Coldplay playing in fields before we start to demand something new?
I guess the kind of music that Irish festivalgoers are into just isn’t for me, but looking around the likes of Roskilde and even Glastonbury, it’s hard not to conclude that we just don’t demand enough variety from our music festivals. Thank fuck we’ve been spared the spectre of Kings of Leon for a year at least, though.
