Hotpress.com brings you our exclusive first photos from Oxegen '08. Our man Graham Keogh was up front to catch all the action for headliners Kings Of Leon, along with Interpol, Cat Power and Friendy Fire.
Check out the live gallery here.
And indeed, all seems to be going well on the live front, with sterling performances from Kings Of Leon and Interpol on the main stage, some mellow sounds from Cat Power in the Pet Sounds tent and a blistering set from White Denim on the 2fm New Band Stage.
Kings Of Leon – Friday's headliners – drew the biggest crowd, knocking out hits 'On Call' and 'Charmer', along with 'Tranny', 'Milk' and 'Taper Jean Girl'. The lads were suitably impressed by the size of the crowd, and seemed almost humbled that so many had turned out to see them!
Other acts who impressed were Aphex Twin, who played to the Pet Sounds tent before Cat Power, and Bell X1 in the Green Room.
And of course the Hot Press Signing Tent in going down a storm, with appearances yesterday from Mundy, Paddy Casey and Sam Fogarino from Interpol.
The lovely Sam also impressed our own Roisin Dwyer with a relaxed video chat for hotpress.com. Topics up for discussion included Nick Cave, signing body parts, festival food and his side-project.
