OXEGEN Fans & Festival organisers move to combat ticket touting

Last Chance For Fans To Secure Tickets At Face Value!
In order to combat ticket touting a limited number of extra weekend camping tickets for the sold out OXEGEN festival will go on sale this Friday 20 June.
Following concerns from genuine fans last year about ticket touting and signs that tickets for this year’s festival have been selling on various unofficial websites for as much as €486, a limited number of extra tickets have been made available and fans are strongly advised to only purchase tickets via the OXEGEN website oxegen.ie or through Ticketmaster.

3 day camping tickets sold out over 3 months ago within days of going on sale. The event is taking place from 11th-13th July 2008 at Punchestown Racecourse, Naas, Co Kildare.
