Oxjam 2013 festival line-up

Our round-up of the best Oxjam events taking place in this capital this autumn

© Guy Stephens
Technically speaking, Oxjam is one of the biggest music festivals in the UK. With dozens of events featuring thousands of artists in cities throughout the country, this charity festival (this year taking place Mon Sep 23 – Sat Oct 29) place is run by volunteers and all the proceeds go towards Oxfam’s anti-poverty initiatives. So, fancy catching some great live music and feeling extra-good about it? Find a local Oxjam event or multi-venue takeover near you with our handy guide.

What's happening in London for Oxjam 2013?

Oxjam Brixton Takeover

  • Critics choice
Cooly G, Youth, Misty Miller, Whales In Cubicles, Mangoseed, Raw Fire, Psycho Delia, Vodun, Mickey Gloss,  Rob Pursey, The Royal Sounds, Lovella Ellis, Poeticat + more.
Brixton always goes nuts for Oxjam, booking some of the festival’s biggest names, and this year’s no exception. At the Takeover’s dance and dub hub (The Prince of Wales, formerly Brixton Clubhouse/Dex) you can catch smoky electronic soul by Cooly G, Killing Joke bassist/techno producer Youth and Horse Meat Disco resident Severino Panzetta, while over at The Windmill there’s dramatic, Siouxsie-style rock from Misty Miller and stylish alt rock by rising band Whales in Cubicles. Add in D&B at The White Horse, hip hop, dubstep and garage upstairs at The Ritzy, and reggae and roots sounds at Effra Social – and a cheap-as-jerk-chicken £10 ticket price – and you’ve got an unmissable all-dayer.

Oxjam Chiswick Takeover

    This corner of west London is hardly known for its music scene, but the Chiswick Oxjam Takeover volunteers have pulled together an impressive and diverse line-up: everything from a Rolling Stones tribute group, to the massed drums of the Batala London samba band. There are some unusual venues involved, too, including the Metropolis recording studios and the Hogarth Health Club, where Iron Maiden frontman and local resident Bruce Dickinson will be introducing the festival at 12pm. Wristbands are £13, or £17 to include the Counterfeit Stones.

    Oxjam Dalston Takeover

      Patch And The Giant, Ligers, Taches, Courtney King, Milk Teeth, Zoe LDN, Sophie Jameson, Yeah!, Conrad Kira, Brackles, Courtney King, Tony PLX, Autoheart, Paradise Garage + more.
      The perennially popular Dalston Oxjam Takeover has expanded this year to ten venues. The main stage is in Gillett Square: entry is free and you’ll see some last-minute special guests performing from midday until 6pm. For the rest of the festival you’ll need a £10 wristband, available from the Showmen’s Guild (20 Stoke Newington Road): this’ll get you in to see more than 60 acts spread across Tipsy Bar, The Nest, The Marquis of Lansdowne pub, Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston Social, The Victoria on Queensbridge Road and Moustache Bar. Folk, indie, electro-pop and post-punk are all represented: check out touching young folkies Patch and the Giant or indie trio Ligers, wistful, ethereal singer-songwriter Sophie Jamieson, and UK bass by Brackles or piano-pop from Autoheart, the successors to the Keane throne. There's plenty of after-hours DJ action, too.
      1. Various Dalston venues
      2. Sat Oct 19 - Sun Oct 20

      Oxjam Islington Takeover

      • Critics choice

      Oxjam takes over ten venues along Islington's Upper Street for a day, with a mindboggling 100 acts taking part. Highlights include psychotic garage punks Bad for Lazarus, super-heavy riffmeisters God Damn, melancholy folk-rock band Feldspar and epic guitar-pop act Bright Light City (who’ve supported Bastille). Also recommended are the choppy electro and fuzz-bass of Plant Plants, solo rockabilly blues guitarist JD Smith, retro alt pop act Itchy Teeth and young garage punks The Skellies. The Oxjam Islington team wll also open The Mitre pub at 130 Upper Street from Wednesday, with events every night until Sunday.

      Oxjam Kingston Takeover

      Kingston’s got talent: of the 46 artists performing across six stages today as part of the Oxjam charity festival, most are local. Acts of all ages perform folk, pop, rock, indie, R&B, ‘geezer punk’ and more.

      Oxjam Notting Hill Takeover

        Latala, Gamer, Black River Wild, Devil Say Dance, Dorjee, Andrea Black, Samson, Pyrelli + more.
        Portobello Road gets the Oxjam Takeover treatment, with four different venues on the street hosting live acts. Grab a £5 wristband from 6pm and get into the hip hop, funk and soul grooves at Mau Mau Bar, catch acoustic artists at Portobello Gold or Trailer Happiness, or watch some indie, rock and blues bands (including the psychedelic stylings of Devil Say Dance and folk-rock band Black River Wild, led by Gary Oldman lookalike Blake Robson) at The Castle. Then head down to the legendary The Globe bar on Talbot Road for reggae and bashment until 2am.

        Oxjam Shoreditch Takeover

        • Critics choice
        Matt Henry, Native Sun, Little Simz, Lily McKenzie, Cynikal, Mikel Ameen, Old Man Diode, Aja Monet, Dionne Reid, Ebru, Shanaz Dorsett, Stickman Cartel, Hot Fiction, Greeds, Raff, Lostboy, Late Arrivals Club, Ego Ella May + more.
        The Shoreditch Oxjam Takeover is only in its second year, but it’s already got a track record for talent-spotting: fast-rising acts – including The Hics and soul singer Jacob Banks – played last year. This year they’ve booked Matt Henry (one of the finalists from ‘The Voice’), Afrobeats duo Native Sun and talented young MC Little Simz among 40 acts, playing four Shoreditch venues – The Macbeth, Bedroom Bar, Mother Bar and Troy Bar. Other up-and-coming hip hop, electronica and pop acts on the bill include London-based soul singer McKenzie, who featured on FunkyStepz's dub-house track 'For U', politically conscious hip hopper Ameen and dark soul electronicist Old Man Diode.

        Oxjam Clapham Takeover

        The Clapham Oxjam 2013 Takeover is two festivals in one. Head down to the grittier Clapham North end of the High Street for some choice alt rock and indie acts, including spiky German band The Canvas Divine (who have flown all the way to London for Oxjam) and young and noisy shoegazers Fever Dream, plus electronic and funk acts. Meanwhile, up at the more genteel Clapham Common end, there’s a full range of heart-tugging singer-songwriters, folk and acoustic acts. The Clapham Takeover is free, but donations are encouraged and some of the venues are running charity raffles.
