Oxegen 2004: How Much Do You Remember About It?

Time to take a walk down memory lane.

AFTER SAYING GOODBYE to Witnness in 2003, festival-goers were introduced to Oxegen.

And from 2004 until 2011 – and briefly again in 2013 – the music festival, which initially started as a three-day event but ultimately became a four-day one, was held in Punchestown Racecourse in Co Kildare.

For many of us, Oxegen was our first introduction to music festivals, and long before we ever heard of Life Festival, Body&Soul or Sea Sessions, Oxegen was our touchstone for what we thought a music festival should be.
