Gigs for Good

Get ready to get down for a good cause, because the world’s biggest ‘party against poverty’, OXJAM, is about to make its debut in Australia.

One of Oxfam‘s most important fundraising campaigns, OXJAM is a month-long celebration of live music that uses the universal language of song and dance to raise awareness and money for anti-poverty projects worldwide. In the UK, OXJAM has already been on music lovers’ calendars for around a decade, with the likes of Coldplay and Fatboy Slim headlining past bills. OXJAM Australia will feature a program of live concerts from yet-to-be-announced acts, curated by music taste makers such as MTV, I Oh You and Goodgod Small Club.

As well as taking over public venues across the country, OXJAM is designed to be celebrated in your own living room: register online to host an OXJAM party and raise money for one of Oxfam’s three development project streams: gender equality, disaster relief or water security. Follow along on Facebook for more updates – including the full line up of OXJAM events, set to be released later this month – and don’t forget to register your own fundraising gig here. Jam out!
