The official lineup for Oxegen 2011 has just been announced at a special launch party in Dublin. We had already known that the Foo Fighters, Blink 182, Arctic Monkeys, Paolo Nutini, and the Black Eyed Peas were on the bill. But punters will be delighted to know that Coldplay and the Strokes are playing, that’s sure to sell many more tickets. Plus we’ve got a Gallagher brother! Although a few eyebrows will be raised at the inclusion of the Script. That said, I’m going to see them this Friday. So who am I to judge? But My Chemical Romance, seriously?
Oxegen 2011 takes place in Punchestown Racecourse, Co. Kildare from the 7th to the 10th of July.
