Gig makers and volunteers wanted for the Oxjam

Have you got some kick-ass event planning skills that you’ve been itching to show? Or maybe you can’t be bothered with all the fuss that takes place backstage and you just want to sing your face off for music’s sake? If you are UK-based and craving to organize a party for a good cause, Oxjam is here to do it with you.

Oxjam – Oxfam’s yearly party that takes place in October – is a grassroots festival that you can make happen in your own backyard. To set it in motion, all Oxfam needs is a bunch of fun and hard work loving volunteers like you to come together and become gig makers. Need more convincing? Watch this video about Oxjam 2014 and dream a little bit: the next behind-the-scenes star could be you.

Stars like Fatboy Slim are definitely jamming to the Oxjam tune: “All you need to make an Oxjam event happen is a set of decks, a few choice tunes and a place to play them, so there’s really no excuse not to get involved.”

Got it? What are you waiting for?!
