Ireland's Oxegen festival to return in August

IRELAND’S Oxegen festival is returning this summer after a hiatus last year.

As usual the festival will take place in its usual home of Punchestown Racecourse, Co Kildare, however it will be a two-day event instead of three days.

It is also taking place on August 3 and 4 instead of the earlier July date of previous years.

The line-up for Oxegen 2013 is expected to be revealed in late February.

Elton John, The Flaming Lips and Eminem are among the acts currently rumoured to be featuring on the bill.
