Festival-goers woke up to blue skies and sunshine this morning as they prepared for a final day of amazing live music and fantastic festival fun at OXEGEN. The break in the weather came following a host of triumphant shows from Saturday night?s headline acts.

Fans are reminded that on Monday they should take time and care when leaving site ? remember campsites and car parks are open until 6pm.

There will be at least a 90 minute delay exiting on site car parks at the end of the concert as Public transport, coaches and park and ride shuttle buses will be given priority.

While Muse rocked the Main Stage last night with an incendiary live set and dazzling light and laser show, The Black Eyed Peas got the party started over at the Vodafone Stage, with front man Will.I.am telling fans; ?Oxegen is one of the best festivals in the world.?
The singer said the band was delighted to return to Ireland for one of the last shows of their current European tour, saying: ?You?re really special to us. Out of all the places in the world we?ve been we?ve asked; ?Where is the love?? ? and the love is definitely here in Ireland?.
The band prompted a massive crowd sing-along with covers of Sex On Fire and Sweet Child Of Mine?.
Calvin Harris closed the Heineken Green Spheres Stage with a brilliant set. He said: ?Oxegen its a pleasure to be stood before you, are you ready to go absolutely mental?
When fans happily obliged the singer grinned: ?This is the reason we love coming to Ireland!
And after his set Harris tweeted: ?Oxegen last night was the gig of my life…! I’m going back to London now. Not had very much sleep at all. All sorts of weirdness went on!??
Earlier in the day Dizzee Rascal kept fans bouncing at the Main Stage. The rapper said: ‘Dizzee loves coming to Ireland – I assume you all still love to party yeah?? adding ?Yo people, I don’t care about the rain and I know you’re still having a good time. Ireland we love you.?
The World Cup Final between, Netherlands V Spain, will be broadcast at OXEGEN 2010 on the largest mobile LED in the world. The Nokia Live Stage in the blue campsite will be showing the match from 7pm on Nokia?s massive 100 sq m full HD screen.
Today fans were looking forward to acts including Eminem, The Prodigy, Faithless, Mumford & Sons.
Bin Your Empties, our recycling initiative to encourage fans to help us to recycle has had a fantastic response so far. Campers have helped us recycle over 4000 bags of empties so far- a record for an Irish festival.
