Music festival Oxegen 2014 will not take place this year, it has been announced.

One of the largest music festivals in Ireland was due to take place in August.

It has previously been held in Punchestown, Co Kildare.

A statement on the Oxegen website said: “It is with regret that MCD announce that OXEGEN will not take place this year due to lack of suitable Headline Acts which combined with the financial demands by local agencies make it no longer viable to stage the Festival in its current form.”

The festival has attracted crowds of up to 80,000.

Last year’s festival was downsized from three days to two-and-a-half days and was headlined by David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Snoop Dogg.
