Oxjam Brum Takeover Festival returns Saturday 17 October

Oxjam Brum is a major one-day multi-venue celebration 
of the best of Birmingham’s independent music scene, curated and delivered 
by a team of dedicated volunteers who know and love the city. All proceeds from The Oxjam Brum Takeover Festival will be donated directly towards the charity’s lifesaving work to eradicate global poverty.

Artists confirmed include Benjamin Yellowitz, The Rooz and Josh Kemp as well as over 50 other bands, spoken word performers and DJs from throughout Birmingham. There are festival stages in seven city centre venues plus secret gigs to be announced on Frederic’s Canal Barge. There will also be a raffle with all proceeds from this and tickets going directly to Oxfam.
