It’s Oxegen week at The Ticket. We talk to the Punchestown-bound Fight Like Apes about their rocky rock to Co Kildare, Tony Clayton-Lea gives his guide to the weekend’s runners and riders and we unleash Oxegen I Spy, the game for all the family to play as they wonder when it’s going to rain.

New Music love this week for Miike Snow, Sleep Thieves, Screaming Females, The Clonious, Blattant and Mount Kimbie, while there’s Music News on playing safe at Oxegen, more festivals on the way, The Daily Ticket and Radiohead manager’s new foray into record labels.

CD of the Week comes from the excellent Gurrumul and there are also reviews of releases from Frankmusik, Wave Machines, Sam Shinazz, Dan Black, The Field, J Dilla, Don Henley and many more.

New films in the cinemas this week are Bruno, 35 Shots of Rum, Fired Up, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and Cloud 9. Also from the movies department: an interview with Rebecca Miller, DVD reviews, movie news (including the latest list of the most lucrative films ever at the box office) and the weekly movie quiz. Plus Michael Clark on his new Galway Arts Fest-bound show inspired by David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed, while Brian Boyd scrutinises the Dublin-bound Steve Van Zandt’s vision for the music industry.

The Ticket: music, movies and the potential for mud

Parish notes: that Banter podcast from last weekend’s session (with Today FM’s Paul McLoone and Power FM’s The Golden Maverick) is now live and you can hear it or download it here.

This week’s OTR community noticeboard is now open for business. Get plugging, folks. Keep them short and snappy and declare an interest where one should be declared.
