WOO! I'm just back from Oxegen a little while. Had a FANTASTIC time.
Friday and Saturday were a bit wet and muddy and we were expecting lots of sun but we really got it yesterday and today!
It was scorching hot, easily over 25 degrees and we had practicaly nowhere to sit in the shade. The water wasn't working very well either and it wasn't very cold and there was no wind. So yeah, HOT!
Anyway I saw lots of bands: (in order of seeing them)
1.Eagles of death metal (loved them!)
2.Snoop Dogg (I didn't want to see him but I was trying to get a place for QOTSA, he was crap and stole a half hour of QOTSA's time)
3.QOTSA ( brilliant but I was so annoyed they were cut short)
4.Green Day, (were absolutely fantastic!!)
1.Feeder (I was nearly passed out from heat when they were playing but they were great)
2.The Streets, (had to go with my friend who likes them)
3 James Brown (WOO)
I didn't bother going to Foo Fighters, there was lots of other people who I wanted to see but they clashed with the others. We had a brilliant time though, Green Day were by far the best, even people who don't like them and saw them said they were great!
I did NOT see: the killers and Keane. losers.
We all got sunburnt even though we spent half the day putting cream on.
When we were leaving today (there was just 4 of us going for the same bus) we discovered we would be waiting for a taxi for a few hours, it was already about nine so we decided to walk from Punchestown into Naas, which is six and a half miles!
BUT WE DID IT! Even in the heat and it really is roasting! And we had all our bags and stuff!
The place got so trshed last night, it was really funny, people were lighting fires and ripping down the fences. We stayed up til about 4 o'clock and sang any song we could think of (we had little drums and a guitar so we made a racket). We even got an audience for 'The Brady Bunch'.
Really great weekend! Expensive and stinky but still brilliant!
