Coldplay to close this year's Oxegen
March 8, 2011 8:00 pm
Irish festival show announced for July 10



Good evening. We have another festival show to tell you about - on Sunday July 10th, Coldplay will close the main stage at this year's Oxegen Festival. Tickets have just gone on sale via ticketmaster.ie. For more information on the festival, head over to oxegen.ie.

This brings the number of confirmed 2011 festival shows to 15. Click here to see the full list.

------------------------------------

It's one of the many names being thrown around since arctic monkeys and foo fighters are the only headline acts announced so far meaning blink 182 are probably going to be on before one of them. Does anyone know anything or have a better insight for the line up? Really hoping Coldplay will be there :D

Pulp, Coldplay for Oxegen?



Pulp, Coldplay for Oxegen?

The very minute we heard they'd be hitting the festival circuit this summer we figured Pulp would play Oxegen, but now that they've been confirmed for Scottish sister festival T in the Park, it's seems a sure-fire certainty. I said seems. Don't quote me if it never happens.

Meanwhile Coldplay have also been confirmed for the Scottish shindig, which also takes place from July 8th to 10th. The Arctics have already been confirmed for Oxegen, so fingers crossed there'll be an announcment confirming Chris Martin and co. for Punchestown soon enough.

A recently announced line up also has the likes of Bright Eyes, Weezer, The Script and Blondie hitting T in the Park, all of which seem likely for Oxegen too.

I wouldn't be surprised the way they're going.

Maybe they're trying to break the world record for number of headline festival spots done in one summer :p

I'M GOING.

I just bought my Sunday-only pass.

The reason I had to go was because The Strokes AND Coldplay are headlining the same day, the SAME STAGE. The Strokes will basically be opening for Coldplay, and I am just as nutso about The Strokes as I am about Coldplay, even moreso lately given the fact that they're releasing a new album and Coldplay's been quiet.

It was like a sign from the universe for me, not only that they were both playing the same festival, but that they were both playing the same festival on the same stage on the same day. I'm still in shock. I've been doing this all night: :bigcry:

OK, needed to get that out of my system :lol:. Who else is going?

Exactly, I was really hesitant to do it because I'm also going to Coachella and Sweetlife in Washington DC this year (and I live in England, haha, so huge travel expenses). But I told myself that I would regret it for the rest of my life if I didn't see my two favorite bands of all time play the same stage on the same day and I could feasibly go...and compared to California, Ireland is right around the corner! Once I put it that way, it was a no-brainer.

As much as I hate camping, I wish I could see the Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys as well, but I think I made a wise choice by going for Sunday only. I have to prioritise myself, haha.

i don't blame you, plus oxegen is a really cool festival. I know that on the sunday i'll be going to the main stage as soon possible and stay there for the day no matter who is on before the strokes and coldplay, just pray it's good bands (good things come to those who wait!)

Oh me too, I will be doing nothing besides maybe buying water and food and then high-tailing it to the main stage and waiting there ALL day, hopefully getting as close as I can. I plan to do the same at Coachella on the last day, and that's just for The Strokes :p. I will probably die of happiness if The National happens to be on the main stage on Sunday as well :dead:.

I've never done a festival before, but at least by the time Oxegen rolls around I'll have one under my belt!
