Ireland may Witnness Oasis...

Oasis and the Foo Fighters are set to rock the Witnness Festival this summer, the Irish Mirror revealed.

News of the super two-day event is being kept top secret until the official launch party tonight. But the Irish Mirror has learned details of the huge acts that have been lined up for the marathon event at Fairyhouse Racecourse in Co Meath on July 13 and 14.

A show insider said last night: "At this stage it looks like the Chemical Brothers and the Foo Fighters will headline the Saturday night show and No Doubt and Oasis will star on Sunday. There will be no official announcement that Oasis are coming to the bash on Thursday night because they haven't signed up and confirmed yet. But they are the big target to close the largest music festival of the year."

The source went on: "It's at the stage now where contracts could soon be signed and it could be all go for Oasis to perform in Ireland. They are performing at the T In The Park festival in Scotland the night before and could fly into Ireland on Sunday to headline the show."

Most of the star-studded line up will be revealed at the exclusive VIP bash at the Guinness Store House tonight. But organisers have no intentions of revealing their negotiations with Oasis at this stage.

Over 60,000 fans are expected to flock to the event which has starred Travis, The Stereophonics and Texas in the past.

Last year thousands of fans braved swamp-like conditions to camp overnight at the racecourse venue and soak up the festival atmosphere.

A show insider added: "This year's festival is going to be the biggest ever and if Oasis agree to play then it's going to be incredible. Every major rock act wants to be a part of Witnness - this is Ireland's equivalent to Glastonbury. Even if Oasis change their mind and don't make it over there's going to be an impressive list of stars."

Witnness organisers were keeping the line-up a closely guarded secret as the prepared for the launch party. A spokeswoman said: "We can't give anything away until the launch party. It will remain a secret. What we can say is that there is going to be an incredible lineup of top stars and this year's festival is going to be the best so far."

A source close to Oasis said: "They are definitely up for an Irish gig. Initially the plan was for them to do Slane but the dates don't work out for it. They could do a stadium concert at somewhere like Lansdowne Road. But the lads like playing festivals because there is always a great atmosphere. They love Ireland and always have a great time when they come over."
