OXEGEN kicked off in style yesterday with some of the world?s biggest artists and a host of celebs joining the 75,000 fans in attendance across the weekend. 1. US hip-hop star Jay-Z was a highlight of the Friday night line up, sending fans wild with a hit packed set. He flew in to Dublin on a private jet accompanied by wife Beyonce, who watched her husband from side of stage.
The rapper thanked fans for coming to see him, saying; ?I feel like Ireland could be my second home… you might be the wildest crowd I?ve ever seen,? adding; ?Oxegen I?ve had a beautiful time with you tonight, you guys have been an amazing crowd?.
Indie heroes Arcade Fire made sure last night?s Main Stage bill ended on a high, playing on until the early hours. Frontman Win Butler told fans ?We?re so excited to be here?!
2. Celebs mingled with fans and enjoyed the inimitable OXEGEN atmosphere. Laura Whitmore hung out in the artist area and joined fans at the main stage for Jay-Z?s set.
