What is OxJam? Oxjam began in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK, all united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. 9 years on we’re still going strong, with hundreds of incredible gigs taking place each October.

The great thing about Oxjam is the diversity of the events on offer – from our multi-venue Takeover events, to sponsored busks on top of mountains – we’ve seen it all. Over the years we’ve gained several high profile celebrity supporters, including Jarvis Cocker, Fatboy Slim, Damon Albarn, Hot Chip, 2manydjs and many more. But at its heart Oxjam is still a grassroots festival, with thousands of volunteers celebrating music in their local communities by organising their own gigs in support of Oxfam GB.

Many hands make light work as they say. We would really appreciate your help.
