Sunshine at Oxegen ?
Watch out for predictable rain. The pig feels it in his tail for 2010 right but noone says it like the press "Nothing Could Rain on Oxigen's Parade" Irish Independent, 9th July 2007
Oxegen tickets sold out in less then 20 minutes in 2008. The strange thing there were no music acts announced at the time. There was 80,000 tickets !
