What to expect at Oxegen this weekend
Just a sample of what’s ahead.

OXEGEN IS BACK this weekend. Are you going? Never been before?

Here are a few things you can expect to see. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Thunder and rain

Warm, sticky, rain. The forecast is bleakish. Sorry.



So quirky.

Multiple Irish flags

Just in case we forget where we are.

Fringed festival wear

Oxegen is a time capsule of early noughties fashion.

Usually in the act of taking a sneaky naggin out of some girl’s beehive or shining a flash-light around.

Someone with stuff drawn all over them

Usually of an explicit nature.

Well, don’t just stand there watching her, get involved.

A ‘complete ledgebag’ in a mankini

Unfortunately still considered ‘gas’ by some.

Someone on a pair of shoulders with their hands in the air

They just don’t care.

A bit of music too, we suppose
