Could you organise a music festival? Oxjam Sheffield tell us how to get involved
Oxjam Sheffield are on the hunt for a talented group of people to join their team for a unique experience of running their 2017 music festival. Oxjam is the nation’s biggest grassroots musical festival, run entirely by volunteers and raises over £200,000 annually for the charity Oxfam to fight poverty worldwide.
With big names such as Jarvis Cocker and Fatboy Slim having championed the nationwide scheme, the festival is set to return to Sheffield following their 2015 takeover, which featured the likes of Bison, Sieben, and Steel City Rhythm and raised over £6,000 for the cause.
Festival organisers told us that “we’re looking for people that are passionate about local music, and people that are keen to give their time to raise money that has real power to change people’s lives around the world for the better. It’s a lot of hard work but it’s such a rewarding and enjoyable experience and a great thing to be part of in a city with a music scene as vibrant as Sheffield’s.”
“Whether you are keen to raise money for this incredible cause or fancy gaining experience of working in the music industry we’re keen to speak to people who are excited by the idea of taking part in organising this established event.”
