Band thank hardcore for shunning festival headliners

Cajun Dance Party played an endearing set tonight (July 13) as the Oxegen Festival 2008 moved towards its climax.

The five-piece played on the 2FM New Band Stage and though only attracting a modest crowd – like much of the new talent this weekend who played the tent while more established headliners were on – the band ensured their hardcore were entertained.

“Thanks for coming to see us,” singer Daniel Blumberg told the crowd, acknowledging his band’s predicament and the crowd’s warm applause. “There are a lot of good bands on at the moment.”

Later he thanked the crowd again, explaining “this is our first time in Ireland, it’s really nice.”

Cajun Dance Party played:

‘Colourful Life’

‘Time Falls’

‘Five Days’


‘The Firework’

‘The Race’


‘The Hill, The View And The Lights’

‘The Next Untouchable’
