They will be giving artists a blank 12″ record sleeve for them to ‘re-imagine’ a new cover for their favourite album by a Midlands artist/ or maybe write/design their favourite song lyrics which they will auction off for Oxjam at the end of the festival. Here is a little background about Oxjam and why Fused Magazine are getting involved;
OxjamBrum operates with zero budget; and so we ask that all artists involved kindly donate their services for free, enabling us to make sure every single penny raised goes to Oxfam. This year’s Takeover Festival is raising funds for, and awareness of Oxfam’s GROW campaign. The OxjamBrum Takeover Festival is a major one-day multi-venue celebration of the best of Birmingham’s independent music scene, curated and delivered by a team of dedicated volunteers who know and love the city.
This is a great cause to get involved with and we hope to see lots of submissions at the auction. Oxjam will take place on Saturday 13th October along with lots of other events in Birmingham that day! To get your sleeve, email firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to find out more.
