I'm the Oxjam Islington Manager. I'm charged with keeping things running and looking after the team. Though they tend to look after to me and to be honest, I'm just really happy to be here! Bring on the festival!
Kate Kandiah - Website / Old Street Studios
My original involvement with Oxjam Islington stemmed from my love of Angel and my connection with the great www.oldstreetstudios.com. I help out wherever I can with events, marketing and our web management. Great music, great area, great causes. Win.win.win.
Joana Casaca / Video Production & Marketing Assistant
I couldn't be happier being part of this amazing music festival! Music is really my passion and to be able to use it, together with my skills, to contribute to such big and important social causes like Oxfam´s is truly an honour. Great music plus great causes, for me, it equals happiness. :)

Chris Hough / Venues & Marketing
I’ve been involved with Oxjam Islington on and off for the last 3 exciting years. It’s been great being able to utilise the skills I have to raise funds for a very worthy cause and have a lot of fun while doing it. I get to DJ a bit too which is nice. Can’t wait for the festival!
Sorrel Harriet / Web Developer / Sound Engineer
I'm part of the Oxjam Islington web and production teams. I help with the sound at events, as well as doing my best to keep the Oxjam Islington website up to date...(not easy as there's always so much happening!) As a music junkie and supporter of Oxfam, it's great to be able to put my skills to good use as part of this fantastic team!
Here at Oxjam Islington, we think our volunteers are splendid. In fact, everyone here is volunteer - chipping in our time, effort and brainpower to making the event the biggest and best it can be. Why? Because we want to make a real difference to people’s lives.
Wanna join us? Whether you can volunteer 20 hours a week or 20 minutes, we’d love to have you on board. There are loads of ways you can do your bit - here are just a few:
Music is what makes Oxjam what it is, and we love to hear from new bands and musicians. From indie to thrash, electro-pop to P-funk, hiphop to solo songwriters - we’re after artists and bands of all shapes, sizes and genres to perform.

Do you have impeccable taste in music? Do you love organised fun? Are you great at getting people to be in the right place at the right time?

Time to talk dinero - if you’re good at persuading people to give you money, join in with our fundraising team. Whether it’s raising sponsorship money, coming up with creative fundraising ideas and seeing them through, get involved!
Volunteers - the people who make it happen
We need an army of volunteers on the day to make sure everything runs smoothly and everyone has a splendid time. There are a variety of things that need doing throughout the festival, and you'll be part of the team, get some useful experience and will hear some great music too!
