well if you get to the front they give out free cups of water which is a life saver if you plan on sticking round for long like i did last year. i managed to get to the front for everyone i saw except for the coronas, bombay bicycle club (but there was only like 2 or 3 rows of people in front) and mumford and sons and there was only one person in front of me. Just bring food with you that won't go off or melt and you'll be sorted. This will be the 2nd time i've gone so hopefully i'll learn from last years experience to make up for what i did wrong then, which was quite a lot really haOh 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 . I will probably die of happiness if The National happens to be on the main stage on Sunday as well .
I've never done a festival before, but at least by the time Oxegen rolls around I'll have one under my belt!
when you get your ticket get it for the Red camp unless you're going to the green camp. Blue camp is supposed to be where the scummier people go. It looked it too when I passed it last year going to the Red camp. Still Oxegen is a great festival, hope you have funI am currently working it out to go to this festival. I live in the US and have never been out of the country. I haven't seen Coldplay perform live in almost 2 years and I really really really want to see them. Along with being a huge Coldplay fan, I am also a huge fan of the Strokes. So being able to see both bands at the same place would be something completely unforgettable. I have traveled to various cities in the US to see Coldplay perform but this will be my first trip out of the country. Hoping that is all works out so I can go.
If I were you i'd sell your ticket and just get a 3 day camping ticket instead, you'd save more money that waywell i'm going with Chelsea but FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK they moved The Strokes to friday now we have to move our flights and get friday tickets as well UGH sucks so bad
they announced the days now though...people are saying that The Strokes will probably headline the second stage but..that would mean that The National would alsdo probs headline second stage on sunday? which would SUCK so fucking bad (sorry my language i'm just pissed off at this festival..) I dunno...i just really want The National to play the main stage and The Strokes to play the second stage
it's going to be awesome! i've already planned out the bands i'm making an effort to see. Got my tent last week so all i need now is my alcohol and for Oxegen to release the stages and timesI'm going on Friday & Sunday now, for The Strokes and Coldplay. If I had known The Strokes were going to change the day they were playing from Sunday to Friday, I would just have gotten a whole weekend ticket, but...urgh. I blame Blink-182 for dropping out and Beyonce for taking The Strokes' place on Sunday, haha . Now I just need everything to pull through for Jo!
Despite the additional, unexpected expense...I'M SEEING BOTH MY FAVORITE BANDS OF ALL TIME IN THE SAME WEEKEND
your mate is wrong, they released it all with about 2 weeks before the festival last year along with a free app for the iphone/itouch. They also said today that they'll be releasing allocated stages and stage times early next weekMy friend who has gone to Oxegen said that they don't release the stage times until you're AT the festival so you sort of have to buy this guide with the stage times..I think it sucks cos you can't really plan ahead on who you're gonna see etc. I just want to know if The National will play the same stage as Coldplay...and which stage The Strokes play at..WELL anyways, just a bit over 2 weeks to go now!
