Heading today’s announcement is the guitar legend that is known as SLASH, the man responsible for some of rock’s most iconic guitar solo’s! Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) have gone from underground sensations to the hottest new act in the USA in just a few months and they’ve even graced the front cover of Billboard Magazine.
METRONOMY’s new album ‘The English Rivera’ was only released last week but is already considered a genuine contender for album of the year. NME gave it 9/10 calling Metronomy “one of the most expansive and visionary bands in the country”.
MANIC STREET PREACHERS are back at Oxegen for the first time since 2009. Classic songs such as ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’, ‘A Design For Life’ and ‘La Tristessa Durera’ helped define a generation. PETER DOHERTY follows up his successful reunion shows with The Libertines last year with a solo tour and a return to Oxegen.
THE SATURDAYS represent ultimate pop perfection! The gorgeous five-piece have enjoyed an incredible run of success with eight top ten singles and they’ve a new album expected this summer! Taylor Momsen is best known for playing Jenny Humphrey on hit TV show Gossip Girl. So the ferocity of her band THE PRETTY RECKLESS could raise an eyebrow from those expecting a pretty, blonde teenager to gravitate toward straight-up pop song-writing!
KE$HA exploded onto the scene when her debut single, ‘Tik Tok’, topped the US charts for 9 consecutive weeks, selling over 5 million copies!
Also added today is one of the brightest rising stars in rap – PROFESSOR GREEN. His debut album ‘Alive Till I’m Dead’ was a standout record from last year. Another rap talent tearing up dance-floors in 2010 was EXAMPLE. He delivered guest vocals on the aforementioned Professor Green’s single Monster and enjoyed more chart success with No.3 hit ‘Kickstarts’.
Completing today’s announcement are CHERRI BOMB, who might just be the youngest band to ever play Oxegen! Made up of four teenage girls with a hard rocking attitude, they’ve supported Smashing Pumpkins and are attracting a huge buzz stateside.
