Venues across the City

Brighton’s local music heroes band together for Oxjam 2013 – The UK’s biggest ever charity music festival.

It’s almost that exciting time of year where thousands of musicians, fans and hundreds of venues nationwide come together for a whole month of gigs for one intention – to play their part in Oxfam’s fight against poverty around the world.

Oxjam takes place in October and since 2006 have raised £2 million in their fight… This month, more than 800 venues, 9,000 volunteers, 7,000 musicians and 150,000 audience members will help make Oxjam bigger and better than ever.

Oxjam is a festival with a difference: thousands of fundraising music events are put on by ordinary people who know and love their local music scene – from large-scale festivals to local sponsored busks – making it the biggest line-up of any music festival in the UK. Local music for a Global impact.

The Oxjam Brighton Takeover this year takes place in multiple venues across the City on Saturday 26th October, with acoustic coffee shop sessions throughout the day, bands playing all afternoon and evening and DJ’s through the night; it’s set to be the biggest one yet!

No stranger to emerging talent, local music college BIMM are backing the event this year as headline sponsors. Oxjam Brighton is also kindly receiving help and support from Above Media, JT Lighting, TSL Lighting, The Pret Foundation, Chameleon Designs and We Love Brighton.

This will get you a wristband for all venues all day & night.
