Oxegen 2013: The Line-up
MCD, the promoters of Oxegen, took a year off and said that the festival would be back in 2013, and as the Spring months started to pass us by, many people started to wonder when an announcement would take place, if it was to happen at all. We got our first taste last Friday. Oxegen is to return in August, with a smaller capacity of 50,000.
Twitter was buzzing over the weekend with rumours, but on Monday we knew that Calvin Harris was definitely the first headliner. Rizzle Kicks followed, as did Jack Beats and Duke Dumont. Pitbull and Example were also named, as was Nero around lunchtime today. Now, the line up has been announced in full:
Chase and Status,
The Original Rudeboys,
The Dead Presidents,
DJ John Gibbons
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike,
As per usual, more acts will be added as time goes on.
Oxegen takes place in Punchestown Racecourse on August 2nd-4th. Early bird tickets go on sale this Friday from €79.50 for a day pass, and €149.50 for three days with camping.
