    you think? For me, take away the Foo's and MCR and I'd be pretty disappointed. Coldplay are good, but not for a festivel. A little to sad for me.

    I was considering buying a ticket for the foo's alone. But I'll just wait till they go on tour.

    The fact that you need MCR worries me.

    I've been to Oxegen every year since I was 15, and this is the first year I'm not going - so bummed! The Strokes are amazing live, I saw them when they were there last in 2006, so go see them if you get the chance!

    I am working there this summer, but you can still see most acts, and I wouldn't be going if it weren't for the strokes...not many of my friends, who are working too would care much to see them, but I don't mind, i'll just go by myself! I'm so excited!

    I'll probably end up going by myself too. Or I'll just forget where I am and who's playing :emo:

    Lack of talent in just about everything, really. Awful music, awful lyrics, just plain awful. I find it hard to find one redeeming feature about them. They took emo down a pretty horrible path and for that I find it hard to like them. Changing emo from the likes of Jimmy Eat World to stuff like them, ugh.

    I'm not surprised, I'm getting the bus up and it's still going to cost a bomb. And that's before general festival shopping. I'm going to be so poor...

    Really? Most people I know who have been (Lots) have said they will never go back. Its full of chavs from Dublin, is super expensive, has mediocre line ups and is generally poor weather wise.

    I've never had a problem with the festival. Weather has always been grand. Never seen any chavs. As festivals go, it's price is pretty normal. Line-ups vary from year to year and no festival ever boasts amazing line-ups consistently.
