Neil Delamare to MC Oxegen Battle of the Bands 08

Kildare Arts Service is excited to announce that Neil Delamare will MC this year's Platform III Oxegen Battle of the Bands Final to be held in Time Venue Naas this Thursday June 5th. Due to unforeseen circumstance PJ Gallagher had to step down for this year's competition leaving the final in Neil's very capable hands. Fresh from the Cat Laughs Festival in Kilkenny, Neil's appearance promises to make this an event not to be missed. Neil is also basking in the success of a recent sell out run in Vicar Street. The combination of one of Ireland's top comedians and the cream of Kildare's music talent ensures that this Thursday June 5th in Time: Venue is a night not to be missed.
This year, five bands have been chosen to compete in Time for a coveted spot on the new band stage at Oxegen this summer. Bright Light Fiasco, Lines Drawing Circles, Mary Bellos and Schmackey and the Salads and The Kill City Defectors are due to take to the stage and Thursday evening.
Doors open at 8:30 and the first band is due to take the stage at 9pm. Tickets €14 at the door.
