Cajun Dance Party play as Oxegen 2008 reaches its climax

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’
