Paolo returns for Oxegen 2011 lineup
BRACE yourselves ladies, Paolo Nutini is the latest confirmed act for Oxegen 2011.
As always, the Herald is on the pulse of what's hot and can exclusively reveal yet another act performing at next year's festival.
The multi-platinum Scottish singer will be treading the boards of Punchestown once again next year.
After wowing the crowds last year, the Candy singer is returning to give his Irish fans another brilliant performance next July.
And in even better news for fans of the band, concert organisers have released a limited batch of early bird saver tickets at 2007 prices, on sale now.
Paolo is no stranger to our shores having jetted over to Ireland several times in the past year for various concerts, and often quotes Damien Rice as being one of his biggest musical inspirations.
2011 marks his ultimate festival year, as he has also been confirmed to headline Belfast's Belsonic and Scotland's Rockness.
Paolo is in good company with some of music's best-known names, including Foo Fighters, Blink 182 and Arctic Monkeys, joining him as headliners for next year's festival.
Since appearing at Oxegen last summer, Paolo triumphed at The Q Awards, where he won Best Male Artist.
His most recent album, Sunny Side Up, was a number-1 hit in Ireland and has gone triple-platinum selling more than 900,000 copies.
And revellers, mark your calendars, 'Europe's Greatest Festival' will be returning to Punchestown Racecourse, Naas, Co Kildare from Thursday, July 7 to Sunday, July 10.
The Early Bird Saver gives you €25 off the cost of your weekend camping ticket, which go on sale in March. Early Bird Saver tickets are now available until Friday, December 31.
