Join hundreds of on and off-the-stage stars and throw your own OXJAM event to help tackle global poverty!

What is AN Oxjam?

An Oxjam is a benefit music performance for Oxfam organized by volunteers. It’s all about supporting independent music venues and providing a platform for up and coming musical talent, while raising money to fight poverty and inequality worldwide!

We're looking for individuals like you to join the Oxjam community and put on an event in your local area. Oxjam events can be whatever you want them to be, from an intimate acoustic preformance in your backyard to full-on music festival with a dj. The choice is yours.

If you’re passionate about your local music scene, and want to help us put an end to poverty while supporting upcoming talent, then hosting an Oxjam is a great way to make a difference!

Raise money to help tackle poverty around the world. Who would have thought changing the world could be so much fun


Lindsay, Oxjam


The best thing is the amount of money I’ve raised while doing what I love! Along with meeting lots of
like-minded people! Oxjam has allowed me to build
my skills in event planning, event operations, marketing, fundraising, volunteer management,
stage management and public relations.”
