Oxegen 2014 in Ireland cancelled

One of the most awaited annual music festivals in Ireland will not go ahead this year.

Oxegen, which in previous years had been staged at Punchestown in the Republic of Ireland, was due to take place at the County Kildare venue in August however plans fell through.

The promoters, MCD, have confirmed that the cancellation is due in part to lack of headline acts as well as with financial demands by other agencies.

This meant, therefore, that it was no longer feasible to stage the event in the way it was heading.

In its heyday, the festival had attracted crowds of up to 80,000 people and has been held every summer, except a break in 2012 since 2014.

The cracks had been showing well since last year after the festival was downsized from three days to two and a half and was headlined by David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Snoop Dogg.
