Get involved

Here at Oxjam Islington, we think our volunteers are splendid. In fact, everyone here is volunteer – chipping in our time, effort and brainpower to making the event the biggest and best it can be. Why? Because we want to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Wanna join us? Whether you can volunteer 20 hours a week or 20 minutes, we’d love to have you on board. There are loads of ways you can do your bit – here are just a few:


Any music festival would be a bit naff if there wasn’t any music, right? From thrash metal to electro-pop to P-funk (and everything in between!) we’re after artists and bands of all shapes, sizes and genres to perform. If you want to get involved, drop us a line on


Do you have impeccable taste in music? Do you love organised fun? Are you great at getting people to be in the right place at the right time? Whether it’s managing a venue on the night, scouting out the best talent to perform at the event, or organising all technical stuff to make the event run smoothly – we want you!


If you’re a marketing maestro get in touch! Whether it’s writing, tweeting (or whatever noise you like to make), posting or flyering our marketing team will welcome you with open arms.

Creative stuff

We just love you creative folks out there – you help make Oxjam pretty! If you’re a dab hand at web design, an avid photographer, or great with graphics, we’d love to hear from you.


Time to talk dinero – if you’re good at persuading people to give you money, join in with our fundraising team. Whether it’s raising sponsorship money, coming up with creative fundraising ideas and seeing them through, get involved!

Feet on the street

We need an army of volunteers on the night to make sure everything runs smoothly and that everyone has a splendid time.
