Oxjam Music Festival takes place every October. It's made up of hundreds of events happening all around the UK, all organised by amazing volunteers.
Oxjam is one massive month of unforgettable gigs happening up and down the country during October, all celebrating local music and all organised by volunteers just like you!
Gigs can take place anywhere and be anything you want them to be from a ukulele jam in your living room to a rock night in your local pub.
A brief introduction
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. 10 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.
There are loads of ways to get involved with Oxjam and be a part of the UK's biggest festival line up. You could organise your own event, and we'll give you all the support and guidance you need to put on a brilliant night. Or why not perform or help out at a local Oxjam gig?
