"Snoop made my weekend!" says Michael from Director

Michael and other Irish artists reminisce their favourite Oxegen moments

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 03 Jul 2009

In the current issue of Hot Press you can read about the moments that six Irish musicians regard as their favourite.

Going against the grain of pure rock n' roll, Michael from Director tells us how a nod from Snoop Dogg will never leave his memory.

"This is maybe slightly sad but for the first time we did Oxegen, Snoop Doggy Dogg was playing and it was pretty amazing. Later backstage, I saw him walking around surrounded by four massive heavies and I got up the courage to say 'Good show, Snoop' and he looked at me - the fact that Snoop Dogg looked at me and gave me a nod made my entire weekend!"

You can read the golden Oxegen moments from The Mighty Stef, Conor from Villagers, Owen from General Fiasco, David Kitt and Wallis Bird in the issue of Hot Press out now.
