Kate Nash for Oxegen

There are more acts still to come.

Kate Nash is the latest high profile addition to the Oxegen bill.

Currently riding high in the charts with their second My Best Friend Is You album, the Londoner is in rude health again after a nightmare year that threatened to derail her career.

"It was just exhaustion,” she confesses. “I was very tired, and very emotional and I was drinking too much. When you have a rider full of beer, it's difficult not to. It got to the stage where I couldn't remember the last time I'd had a day off, I was numb to everything.”

More Oxegen additions are expected later in the day, with a lot of talk about The Libertines including Punchestown in their summer itinerary.

Another name that’s been mentioned in dispatches is Them Crooked Vultures, so here’s hoping!

Like Scroobius Pip, Kate Nash’s none-more-London vocals are open to ridicule, but she has so far proved to be quite the charmer. What is most astonishing is how well her songs (previously lo-fi in the extreme) have translated into big, bold pop tunes. ‘Mouthwash’ is easily the equal of ‘Foundations’, its joyful melody helping obscure the limited subject matter. The speed with which she has been thrust into the glare of the public eye might be a concern, but let’s hope Nash can cope with it all.
