Oxegen scoops Best European Festival Award

Ireland's Oxegen Festival won the Yourope Award for Best European Festival at the UK Festival Awards tonight (30 October).

The Dublin event took the honours at the gala ceremony at London's indigO2, beating off stiff competition from Benicassim (FIB), Open Air St Gallen and last year's winner EXIT Festival.

Its sister event, Scotland's T In The Park, was also among the winners, picking up the Best Line-Up gong.

Both events had Rage Against The Machine, R.E.M., Kings Of Leon and The Verve performing alongside the likes of Amy Winehouse and The Prodigy.

T In The Park wasn't Scotland's only winner on the night as Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival took away the prize for Best Grass Roots festival.
