Oxegen dos and don't

Over 17? Have you got your ID to prove it? If you're blessed with youthful good looks make sure you do! Passport, driving licence, Garda ID or official school/college ID and a colour photocopy of your passport. This year you can lock your ID safely away at Lockerhouse. See www.oxegen.ie for details.

2. Your Companion

Under 17? You need to be accompanied by someone 25 years or over. If you do not comply with this and are refused entry you will not get a refund. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.

3. Your Travel Arrangements

Use Public Transport to beat the traffic. Go to www.dublinbus.ie or www.buseireann.ie. Get dropped off at Goffs for the FREE Park & Ride -- see www.oxegen.ie/faqs. If driving, remember follow 'Oxegen Red Route' signs to Red Car Park and Red Campsite and 'Oxegen Blue Route' signs to Blue Car Park and Blue Campsite.

4. Your parking ticket

Costs €30, bought in advance or on site. Or get it free with four camping tickets in advance from a Ticketmaster outlet. See www.oxegen.ie/faqs

5. The weather

As we know, it can be very unpredictable so be prepared for everything. Pack wellies and warm clothes, as well as sunscreen and sunglasses. And don't forget comfortable footwear.

6. Your running order and festival map

7. Have fun and look after one another

And remember don't wander off on your own, it's a big place. Stay with friends and people you know. Arrange a meeting point in case you get lost.
