Be part of the UK's largest grassroots music festival

Oxjam is all about the people; the Festival Teams, the Gig Makers, the artists and performers, the venues and, of course, the audience. We started out in 2006 with the aim of creating a network of music loving people across the UK, and since then have hosted more than 60,000 musicians playing to an audience of over 1.5 million people.

Oxjam is a unique grassroots movement, a one-off, new type of festival run by volunteers and uniting music fans under a shared goal and vision: to raise money for Oxfam and fight poverty and inequality across the world. In short, Oxjam celebrates and supports local music, while having a global impact. Now that’s something we can all get behind.

If you would like to get involved with Oxjam, then please get in touch! There are so many ways that you can be part of the UK’s largest grassroots music festival. Whether you’d like to apply to run your own festival, host a gig, help out at a local event or just buy tickets and support the cause, we’d be happy to have you on board.

Current opportunities to get involved are listed below, but if what you want to do isn’t covered, then please get in touch. We’re always on the look out for talented individuals to join the Oxjam team and help us end poverty sooner.

“My passion and desire to do something great for charity gave me all the confidence I needed to have a go at things I never thought I could do. I loved meeting new volunteers and friends, listening to awesome musicians and feeling proud of bringing my town together through music.” Kerry Brown, Oxjam Aldershot Takeover Manager, 2015

The wonderful Mr Jukes joined the Oxjam family last year by playing the Oxfam Emporium in Manchester to kick off Oxjam 2017. He joined the likes of Annie Mac, Metronomy, Four Tet and Marika Hackman in supporting the UK’s largest grassroots music festival.
