I'd love to see Florence, not to mention Belle & Seb, Hot Chip, Django, Underworld, Chvrches, and the Manics. Great lineup!
Ahh in all fairness I couldn't imagine anything worse than having to watch Florence & the Machine.

florence + the machine at oxegen the week lungs was released is still one of my fave concerts

her set at EP later that summer wasn't so bad too

she's as good a choice as any as a mainstream headliner there to shift some tickets

Best reaction to the line up on Facebook:
Quite a few substances will be brought along to deal with this lineup

Still a headliner to come too isnt there. Think it said B&S were doing electric arena on Friday night so I assume its still no main stage for Friday, Florence with one of the headline slots and Underworld with the 12-2 saturday night slot

Can't stand her music either myself. The line up is underwhelming so far, I feel. Only about 4 acts there I'd love to see. Or see again in some cases! Mind you, there's a few that I've been meaning to check out that are on the line up too, so overall it could be better than I think it is if that makes sense!

Hello! Yes I was going to log on later to complain, I did it already on twitter though, busy with college today. Pretty shite line up apart from Underworld, which I am very happy with! If they announce a new area to buzz in then I don't really care, I have my ticket already like.

There's not really a lot on the lineup that I would go out of my way to see or haven't seen already

guys, are we on festival fatigue? there are a lot of people saying they have seen the bands before. lets get it straight, we're all old and been going to festivals for the last 10-12 years. of course we've seen loads of bands. We've been spoilt of choice (remember when oxygen was the only game in town?) and grown up (well, gotten older) in a "golden age" of festivals in ireland. we went from the death of Feile in the last 90's, with Slane being the one big concert per year to having EP, oxygen, body and soul, sea sessions, catlepalooza, Marley park gigs, Phoenix park gigs, longitude, indiependence and so on.

i'm sure i had a point somewhere but we're old and seen lots. not the festivials fault we've seen loads.

Theres plenty of acts out there that they never book though. Seems to be easier just to get the same old, same old every year now.

I'd agree with that. Tennents Vital in Belfast have been very original and gone for...... Calvin Harris
