This weekend will see Luton’s finest local music showcased at Oxjam Luton, a day festival, aiming to raise money for poverty and injustice charity Oxfam.
Bands and DJ’s from around the town will be playing across three stages on Saturday October 19 at The Edge Nightclub and Harveys at The Four Horseshoes pub on Park Street.
Music will span across disco, indie, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Nu folk, Irish, acoustic, Jazz, Soul, Funk, Roots, Reggae and Rock, and all proceeds will be donated to Oxfam GB.
From 8pm on Saturday wristband holders can skip between the venues and enjoy the likes of Ting & Ra & The Iries, Papaphone, Future Affairs, New Groove Formation and many more.
The Oxjam Luton Takeover is part of the UK’s largest Charity Music Festival, taking place in hundreds of towns and cities across the UK throughout October, all run by local volunteers.
Local resident and event manager Mark Spence said “It promises to be a very special night - to get musicians of this quality for the event, and to play for free for a great cause, is absolutely fantastic.”
The takeover follows from a successful launch event at the George II pub and a dance night at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts which together raised nearly £1,000.
Tickets are on sale now for £5 per venue or £7 for both available from www.wegottickets.com/oxjam. Tickets will also be available on the door.
“Do please come along and support us. Not only does the £7 ticket price gain access to an evening packed full of entertainment across two venues but it’s also a life-changing gift that goes around the world to fight poverty,” said Mark.
