First Oxegen acts confirmed, full line-up to be announced tomorrow

Oxegen is back for 2013 after a hiatus last year and is set to take place this August Bank Holiday. Despite sharing a line-up with Kinross’ T in the Park in years past, the Punchestown bash has embraced a chart sensibility by the look of this morning’s Facebook announcement.

The first set of acts playing this years OXEGEN festival are:
Calvin Harris, Rizzle Kicks, Jack Beats and Duke Dumont.

The FULL OXEGEN line up will be announced at 7pm tomorrow evening!

We’ll have to wait until Tuesday evening to get a look at the bigger picture, but Kraftwerk supporting Rihanna (as they are at T in the Park) seems doubtful.

Oxegen 2013 takes places between 2nd-4th August at Punchestown Racecourse, Co. Kildare. Early bird tickets will go on sale this Friday (26th April). Three-day weekend camping tickets cost €149.50, and two-day weekend, non-camping tickets cost €129.50 (both include booking fees).

Tickets to this year’s festival are limited to 50,000, but if you purchase your ticket for Oxegen 2013 between 8am on Friday and 8am on Saturday, you will be saving €75 on 2011 prices.
