Anyone for some Oxjam? Following on from the huge success of The Cake Sale album, Oxfam are planning a month-long music festival to raise cash and awareness.

Oxjam has already enlisted the support of DJ Shadow, Klaxons , The Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs and Kasabian (basically, bands beginning with “K”), but it is now seeking other acts to lend a hand with music events around the country during October.

Organisers point out that an Oxjam event which raises €500 can provide safe water for almost 420 people, six emergency shelters or essential medicines for three villages.
