Last year, 12,000 guests attended more than 180 OXJAM gigs across Australia, raising thousands of dollars for Oxfam Australia’s cause in fighting poverty around the world.
Oxfam Australia have enlisted the help of music industry friends UNDR ctrl, I OH YOU and TBC CLUB to present three signature fundraisers, and party animals I OH YOU will be hosting a rock’n’roll bash in Melbourne that will feature Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, The Peep Tempel, Wet Lips and more.
OXJAM will once again feature hundreds of locally organised music events, run by music-lovers and party rockers, and you can also help alleviate the poverty crisis by becoming a gig maker yourself. You’ll get to enter the OXJAM ‘Win a Headliner’ competition, which will grant three lucky gig-makers the opportunity to have hip-hop party people One Day, Brisbane indie-poppers Cub Sport, or Sydney’s PVT play a headline DJ set at their own OXJAM event. These lucky contestants will also win merchandise and tickets to an upcoming show, and will have a chance to win a JB Hi-Fi DJ and acoustics pack valued at $500 each.
I OH YOU will be throwing a party at Howler on Friday August 5. You can also make a difference in the world by heading to the OXJAM website and registering to become a gig-maker so that you can host your own OXJAM event. Or you can just make a beeline to an OXJAM launch event or DIY party and raise cash for a worthy cause.
