Oxjam Festival locations announced for 2018!

Since 2009, Oxjam volunteers have been organising massive multi-venue music festivals in their town or city to raise money for Oxfam and help beat poverty for good. These festivals are the heart of Oxjam and help to champion and support local artists and independent music venues.

Over the years we’ve seen hundreds of Oxjam Festivals spanning the breadth of the UK. Each one is totally unique too and reflective of our inspiring Festival Managers and their teams of volunteers. This year we have 33 Festival locations currently confirmed, with the likes of Newcastle, Darlington, Clapham and Hackney all returning, plus brand new festivals in Tunbridge Wells, High Wycombe, Milton Keynes, Wakefield and more. Check below for the full list of Festivals taking place this October as part of Oxjam – The UK’s largest grassroots music festival.

Want to get involved? Our Festival Managers are currently recruiting core teams comprised of Production, Marketing and Fundraising Coordinators. They will also require on the day volunteers to help with wristband checking, ticket redemption, stage management, fundraising and more. Get in touch with your nearest Festival Manager below, and volunteer at Oxjam this year to beat poverty for good.
