Ireland's Oxegen Festival is set to happen this weekend, with headliners Eminem, Muse, Jay-z, The Black Eyed Peas, Kasabian, The Prodigy, and Florence+The Machine playing over 3 days.

Other interesting acts include Arcade Fire, Dirty Projectors, Editors, Groove Armada and Yeasayer. Check out the full lineup.

Oxegen Festival tickets are on sale here.

Other offbeat Oxegen Festival attractions include a massive 3D video screen with DJs, VJs and a festival TV channel; plus a silent disco with wireless headphones for people to dance.

3 days, 5 stages, 80 acts. The Oxegen Festival brings in almost 100,000 people a year, a huge group of people in its own right.

Oxegen is the music festival formerly known as Witnness, and had traditionally been held in Fairyhouse Racecourse, County Meath, Ireland. In 2004, the festival changed it's name to Oxegen and moved to its current location in Punchestown Racecourse, County Kildare, Ireland.

The Oxegen Festival has become known as the Irish counterpart to Scotland's T in the Park. The two festivals have fallen into having similar line ups on the same weekend, with bands playing opposite days in opposite festivals to cater to audiences in both countries.
