Kaiser Chiefs and more confirmed for Oxegen

Kaiser Chiefs, The Raconteurs and Ian Brown have been confirmed to play Oxegen in Ireland.

The trio will join previously confirmed acts R.E.M and Kings Of Leon at the three-day festival, which takes place in Punchestown Racecourse, Naas, from 11-13 July. 

Interpol, Counting Crows and The Fratellis have also just been added.

It follows last week's announcement by T In The Park, which also included Kaiser Chiefs and The Raconteurs.

Held over the same weekend, the two festivals share almost identical line ups so expect to see Ian Brown playing the Scottish event too, and for most of T In The Park's acts to be announced for Oxegen in due course.

Tickets go on sale at 8am Friday 7 March and will be available to buy here. The campsite will be open on Thursday night this year for the first time, just like T In The Park.
