Guessing there's no Slane this year then? Surely it'd have been announced by now?

My thoughts were exactly the same.

MCD will more than likely be focusing on the PP concerts.

Macca is a definite no.

Not a bit of harm. I'd rather save my money for something like Forbidden Fruits or Body and Soul. Better value for your money than going to see some bloated commercial act like Kings Of Leon or Coldplay taking your money and making a run for it.

I'm sorry but I can't stand this attitude. I'm not even a fan of Kings of Leon (I think last year was probably the worst Slane line-up ever), but you're complaining about some "bloated commercial act taking your money and making a run for it" If you don't want to spend your money on an act like KOL, simply don't go to Slane the year they're playing. Simple as. Some people enjoy their concerts, some don't.

Anyway, does anyone have any idea when/if Slane will be announced? Would love to see Coldplay but I'm going away this Summer.

I think it was penned for september and yes Coldplay are the most likely to headline.

Having said that Coldplay were lined up to play the Aviva but that didn't go ahead, so I could see a possible Slane date also scrapped. Hopefully it won't but I would have liked to have heard something by this stage.

It depends on (if) Slane is happening and when they will have the concert . They could be aiming for the gig in August(for Foo Fighters ) so they have loads of time to announce it since it would be 6 months in advance

You know something we don't? Or are you just hoping for that?

Coldplay would be great, excellent at Oxegen and would be able to handle the big crowd.
The Killers were announced for V Festival in August, perhaps a possibility.
Green Day might be at Reading in August, but thats just me dreaming

Coldplay are the only likely of those three.

The Killers and Green Day if anything will be playing at the Phoenix Park gigs.

I've heard that Green Day will not be at Reading and Leeds, but that they are doing an arena tour in September...

I don't think there will be a Slane this year.
