This Saturday at Portobello Road’s excellent Mau Mau bar, Oxjam Notting Hill will officially be launched with an evening of music from a host of talented artists and DJs, including Lizzie Nightingale, Clencha, Pyrelli, DJ Sam Young, Afro Grooves and Ray Domingo.
Saturday’s launch party kicks things off for Oxjam Notting Hill, who will be hosting a series of gigs over the next few months leading up to the big finale on 19th October 2013.
Oxjam was launched in 2006 as a way of raising money for Oxfam through music. Its success since then is clear to see, with over one million people having attended an Oxjam gig, over 3,500 Oxjam gigs taking place in the UK and over £2 million raised for the charity. Oxjam sees gigs and music festivals being hosted over a whole month, uniting music lovers and musicians and raising money to help aid poverty and end global suffering.
It’s Oxjam Notting Hill’s first year this year, and they aim to showcase some of the best up and coming musical talent from a range of genres – everything from folk to funk to afro beats and blues.
Saturday’s launch party costs £5 (donation) and starts at 7pm, going on til late!
