Annie Mac: For over a decade now these have been two words synonymous with dance music, and over the weekend she played an #OxjamSession in our Manchester Emporium store, lending her support to Oxjam 2017 and totally bringing the roof down.
Oxjam’s massive month of music started earlier than usual this year, with indie heavyweights Everything Everything returning to play a special Oxjam Session for us, eight years after they performed as an unsigned act at Oxjam Manchester.
Over the weekend it was the turn of our Manchester Emporium shop to host the second of our Oxjam Sessions with Jack Steadman – previously frontman with Bombay Bicycle Club and now a solo artist in his own right churning out sample-infused dance music under the pseudonym Mr Jukes.
We're getting hyped for Oxjam 2017, and over the weekend held an exclusive Oxjam Session at our Newcastle shop with alt-country stars Danny and the Champions of the World. As expected, they totally bossed it.
So you’ve planned your event like a total pro by doing your research and getting a dependable team together to help. You have a strong vision for your event and may have already booked your venue and set a date. Once you have the most basic of details sorted, it’s time to start promotion.
Putting together your own event can be incredibly empowering, and for those who haven’t tried their hand at it before, it can be CV enhancing too, providing valuable experience for those seeking to develop a career in the events industry.
Let us present The Oxjam Sessions, featuring four acts playing at God’s Own Junkyard in London. Home of iconic neon artist Chris Bracey, this truly was a special location, though we’ll let you judge that for yourselves.
