Seeing as On The Record spent the weekend raving in Serbia, we were as far removed from what was going on at Oxegen 2008 as it was possible to get.

We’ve had a heads-up about some of the fun and games via the Oxegen coverage in today’s paper, reviews over at State, updates (OK, one update – she had other things to do) from UnaRocks and faster-than-the-speed-of-light reviews and blogs from the NME (including Steve Cummins’s post about “the replacement frontman of a famed Derry City punk band” throwing an after-hours strop in a hotel).

But we really want to hear from the folks who seem to always know more than anyone else about this kind of thing. Cue, the On The Record readers. How was it for you? Was it, as billed, the “greatest rock’n'roll weekend of the year”? Or was the real highlight of the weekend Tipperary’s smashing Munster hurling final victory yesterday afternoon? The floor is yours.
