Oxjam Festival is back this October, promoting charitable giving through great live music. Events take place across the UK by people passionate about live music and raising money for a great cause.

SoundUp Sessions, a live music project founded in 2012 by North London native Charlotte McIlroy, is hosting an official Oxjam warmup in Shoreditch.

SoundUp is known for putting on intimate gigs in unique locations across the city and this event in clothes shop AIDA on Shoreditch High Street, will be no different. The line-up includes Abi Alton, Louise Smith, Sam Wills, Harry Fisher, Joseph Apostol and Jack Flash.
