Over the 3 days over 60 bands and 12 venues took part of this years Oxjam Takeover – an event run entirely by volunteers seeking to raise money for Oxfam, in order to help them with the great work they do.  The festival closed to a draw with 12 hours of Music in Ouseburn this Sunday.  With The Cluny, Cluny 2The Cumberland Arms, Ernest and The Tower, all taking part of this year’s Ouseburn Takeover.

oxjam newcastleNights Out In Newcastle popped along to do our bit and check out the great selection of local bands.  

We enjoyed taking in the bands as we sank a pint or two in The Cluny and the Cumberland Arms.  We saw some great sets from Elephant Memoirs, High Reactive, Driven Serious and The Agency.

All in all it was a great night for an amazing cause.

Oxjam Music Festival is a festival in aid of Oxfam and ran by volunteers.  It is held every October all across the UK.  Working closely with the local music scene Oxjam’s main aim is to raise money and awareness for Oxfam as well as celebrating local artists.
