The Oxjam month of music, which runs through the whole of October. During October, more than 950 venues, 2,000 volunteers, 6,000 bands and musicians and 135,000 audience members will enable Oxjam to raise £500,000 to help Oxfam fight poverty. Oxjam is a festival with a difference: thousands of fundraising music events are put on by ordinary people - from large-scale festivals to local sponsored busks - making it the biggest line-up of any music festival in the UK.

The Oxjam Southampton Takeover team are also linking up with the Music In the City (a 10 day Southampton festival at the beginning of October) between 1st and 10th October to raise money as part of the busking in the city event. The Oxjam team will have a pitch in the City Centre for 10 days. Any acts interested in performing should contact southamptonoxjam@gmail.com.

Jodie Luke Copeland is organising the event, said, "We're really excited to be playing our part in making Southampton part of a month-long musical celebration right across the country. Even more importantly, the day is all about showing that the best in local music can have a global impact too – for example, just £7 could feed a family, and £10 can buy five bags of seeds. So everyone who comes along can rest assured that as well as having a great time, they’ll be helping to change lives around the world too. Early bird tickets are just £5, this works out at less than 10 pence per act."

Oxjam Takeover events take place on 23 & 24 October in the following locations: Aberdeen, Bath, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Brecon, Brighton, Bristol, Canterbury, Cardiff, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guildford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London (Brixton, Leadenhall Market, Brick Lane, Kilburn, Kingston), Manchester, Neath, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Southampton, Stirling, Stoke-on-Trent and Wiltshire.

Since 2006, more than 36,000 musicians have played to an audience of over 750,000 people at almost 3,000 Oxjam events, raising in excess of £1.2 million to fight poverty around the world. Oxjam 2010 is expected to take the total past £1.5 million, enough to buy safe water for 1.6 million people, 750,000 bags of seeds or 60,000 goats.
