Live: Oxegen 2010 Preview Round-up

All this week I intend on keeping this page updated with all the ins-and-outs of Oxegen 2010 from every source possible. So if you want to know the best bands to see, when to see them, and maybe even who to avoid, keep checking back here. Also, please let me know any previews I am missing. I’m sure there are loads.


Gigantic map of the entire site.


Full cross-referential timetable (see who’s clashing with who, who to see at a certain time, etc.)


It’s already shot to #1 in the iTunes chart. Has an interactive planner which will be very handy. Just don’t lose your phone at the festival!
