What is OXJAM?
OXJAM began in the UK in 2006, with the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the country, all united by a shared goal - to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world. OXJAM empowers music lovers to raise funds for Oxfam's life changing work through music. This can mean putting on a gig, volunteering on an existing gig, performing or simply going along to one of the OXJAM events. Acts like Skream, T.E.E.D, Hot Chip, Damon Alban, Greg Wilson, Fatboy Slim, Daniel Avery, Fourtet and JUSTICE having joined in the OXJAM movement in previous years. Now it's our turn to help.
