Our favourite Oxjam gig posters and artwork

Oxfam has a rich musical history, culminating in the launch of its own poverty-beating music festival in 2006: Oxjam.

With the aim of creating a network of music-loving people across the UK and raising money to fight poverty and suffering around the world, Oxjam has gone on to host more than 60,000 musicians playing to an audience of 1.5 million people. There have been thousands of events too, each one with its own distinct personality and character.

As you can imagine, the Oxjam brand has evolved considerably over the years, and we’ve also seen some amazing gig posters, logos and artwork produced by our inspiring volunteers. Here is a selection of some of our favourites. Take a look and see if you can spot some big name artists too, playing what was probably one of their first festival slots.
