The Low Down :
The Oxegen festival is one festival that is dear to my heart. I have been through the highs and lows of this very festival for five years now and each year it gets harder to face the madness. This year I truly believe I won’t attend (Maybe last minute). A one day pass is very likely on the cards. After last years horrible camping muck experience I shall never camp again. When I left my tent in that muddy field last year I vowed I wouldn’t return. The music has never let me down and that is the sole reason I kept returning. Last year was a superb line- up and this year has not let the average music fan down. The Line- up as I already said is very similar to T in the park
The security at the festival is horrible hence the crap camping experience but if you’re willing to bear the muck, sleepless nights, hungoverness, crap food, you will have one hell of a time. Tickets are on sale this Friday but as I said before tickets will be available for any festival on e-bay near the date, so don’t worry about the sell out.
