Preview: Oxjam Clapham 2012

By on Wednesday, 10th October 2012 at 9:00 am

The official festival season is over, and thousands of students, hippies and people with little else to do are once again left with nothing to look forward to except for that first pint on a Friday evening. But wait! Oxjam Clapham 2012 is here, fighting poverty and bringing some tasty new music to your ears.

The Oxjam concept began in 2006 and has grown and morphed into the ever sprawling mass of festivals UK-wide that it is today. Collectively, the festivals have raised over £1.75 million for Oxfam’s work in the UK and abroad: the equivalent of paying for 15,000 emergency shelters; 70,000 goats or 1050 classrooms. Have a think on that for a moment, if you will. Oxjam’s festivals raise money for worthy charities and you can participate simply by purchasing a wristband to this weekend’s event.

The best rock, pop and dance acts from around the Clapham area will be descending on six different venues including dub paradise The White House. Bands playing the festival include fun pop act Angry Vs the Bear, psychedelic rock act White Bone Rattle and South London DIY rockers The Deets, who are not to be missed if you want to have your socks blown off. For the full lineup, go here.

The event takes place this Saturday, the 13th of October, with wristbands for just £10 which gives you access to all of our venues from 12 PM to 5 AM the next day. More information on how to buy your wristband is here on the Oxjam Clapham Web site.
