MTV Dance & MTV Music present OXJAM!
MTV Dance & MTV Music are proudly joinging the fight against poverty!
OXJAM is the month-long music festival raising money to help tackle poverty around the world, that's been running for almost a decade in the UK.
Having recieved support from the likes of Coldplay, Fatboy Slim, T.E.E.D, 2ManyDJs, Hot Chip and more, we're ready to bring the star-studded event to Aussie shores!
Similar to the UK model, this August, MTV Dance and MTV Music will launch a nation-wide grassroots music festival that will feature hundreds of Aussie music events and a bunch of big-name Aussie artists.
Kicking off at MTV, Our VJ Krit will host the official launch party to show everyone how easy it is to throw a gig for good!
“I hope you’re all ready for OXJAM… MTV is! It’s gonna get hype around the MTV HQ because we’re putting on a special event this August to kick off a month long series of parties against poverty. I encourage you to jump in and throw your own Gigs for Good too! Grab some mates, grab some tunes and grab some donations…. It’s literally that easy! I am stoked to be part of such a great initiative that allows people to raise awareness and funds for Oxfam while having a great time and listening to some great music!"
Our mates at Noisey, I OH YOU, UNDR ctrl, the One Day crew, Motorik and Goodgod Small Club are also drawing on their extensive industry networks to help raise cash by announcing the biggest festival lineup of the year!
But you don't need to be a seasoned party promoter or venue owner to get involed.
The best part about OXJAM is, anyone can throw their own OXJAM party. If you're just a kind-hearted music lover who wants to get some friends together and charge entry in the name of poverty, anyone can take part as a Gig Maker.
Everything you need to throw your own OXJAM gig – from expert tips to DIY guides – will be available to you on the OXJAM WEBSITE.
Saving the world has never sounded so good.
