Top Story: State’s Guide To Oxegen 2011 – Friday

A little bamboozled by the choice of acts at this year’s Oxegen? Well hold onto State’s hand and let us guide you around the festival site. Along with your essentials – wellies, sun cream, bog roll, spare mobile batteries – you might want to wear a helmet as clashing is inevitable, the power to bi-, maybe even tri-locate is highly desirable. Disclaimer: this itinerary may not be entirely feasible.

Fenech Soler (Electric Ballroom)

16:00 – Kitsuné endorsed electro-pop from the UK, simple enough to get you dancing, smart enough to keep you there.

Bitches with Wolves (Electric Ballroom)

17:00 – Party with the glitteratzi.

House of Pain (Vodafone Stage)

16:50 – ‘Jump Around’. And…er…some other ones.

Tame Impala (2FM Hotpress Academy)

17:50 – Space out to the psychedelic hypno-groove from Western Australia.

Whipping Boy (Heineken Green Spheres)

18:30 – You don’t need nobody else.

Clare Maguire (2FM Hotpress Academy)

18.55 – The album may be a bit of a non-starter but we reckon that Ms Maguire has something about her and this could be the place to find it.

Tinie Tempah (Vodafone Stage)

19.45 – Pick of the Oxegen pops. Watch the world go nuts to ‘Pass Out’.

Metronomy (2FM Hotpress Academy)

20:00 – Synth-soaked, sophisti-pop from The English Riveria.

Shit Robot (Electric Ballroom)

20.15 – DFA’s disco-punk legend will take you from From The Cradle To The Rave.

The Strokes (Vodafone Stage)

21.30 – Worth seeing a) for material from the ace Angles and b) to see if Julian Casablancas will be as big a twat as he was last time they played here.

Leftfield (Heineken Green Spheres)

23.30 – Or would you rather watch the Black Eyed Peas? We thought not.
