ALL partied out. No longer viable. A conscious uncoupling between promoters and that giant hilly racecourse in Co Kildare.

Of course, MCD's official statement explaining the reason behind Oxegen's cancellation in 2014 is a little less colourful.

It's short and concise, pointing the finger at a) a lack of suitable headline acts, and b) the financial demands by local agencies, which means that Oxegen can no longer continue in its "current form".
