MUSIC fans are set to pack into Huddersfield’s gig venues as Oxjam returns to town.
The charity music festival – which raises money for Oxfam – will takeover town on Saturday, October 15, with more than 40 local bands playing across six venues.
Last year’s inaugural event saw hundreds of people flock to gigs, raising more than £3,500.
This year organisers are hoping for an even bigger response.
Oxjam Huddersfield manager, David Henderson, said: “It’s a great pleasure to bring Oxjam back to Huddersfield for a second year.
“The moment we announced this year’s event we were overwhelmed by messages of encouragement, good will and an amazing amount of interest from bands from last year and a lot of new faces too.
“It’s come together so well, I can hardly wait!”
Top bands lined up for the mini-urban festival, include Mr Shiraz, The Scaramanga Six, Wobbly Bob, Steph Stephenson, Shambolic, The Creeks, Little Vegas Lies, Sarah Carey and The Coroners.
The venues hosting the music are Rhubarb, The Parish, Sleepers, Head of Steam, Huddersfield Student’s Union and Little Buddha Bar.
Oxjam Huddersfield costs just £5 for a wristband which gains unrestricted access to all six venues and the afterparty at Rhubarb.
