As part of Eyecandy we are helping out the OxjamBrum charity. We will be giving artists a blank 12″ record sleeve for them to ‘re-imagine’ a new cover for their favourite album by a Midlands artist/ or maybe write/design their favourite song lyrics which we will auction off for Oxjam at the end of the festival.
OxjamBrum operates with zero budget; and so we ask that all artists involved kindly donate their services for free, enabling us to make sure every single penny raised goes to Oxfam. This year’s Takeover Festival is raising funds for, and awareness of Oxfam’s GROW campaign. The OxjamBrum Takeover Festival 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.
Since 2009, over £18,000 has been raised for Oxfam’s life saving campaign, emergency and development work through the OxjamBrum Takeover Festival and supporting events.
OxjamBrum 2012 will take place on Saturday 13 October 2012.
