Around 40,000 musicians and an audience of 300,000 are expected to take part in 3,000 music events in October for Oxjam, the biggest music festival ever in the UK. Oxfam is calling for DJ, producers, MCs and music fans from right across the UK to get involved now and organise an event in time for October, helping to raise a total more than £1 million for Oxfam.
Stars including Mylo, Roots Manuva and the Mercury Prize-nominated Hot Chip are supporting Oxjam, a unique month-long music festival taking place across the UK in October. They are joining Oxfam in calling on budding DJs, MCs, producers and clubbers to get involved by supporting Oxjam events in their area, or by organising an event themselves.
