Tickets for the tenth instalment of the Oxjam Leeds festival are now on sale - and organisers are promising the biggest event yet.

Oxjam, which is run in conjuction with charity Oxfam, is returning to various venues across the city on Saturday, October 22.

Tickets for this year’s show went on sale Thursday morning and can be purchased at www.oxjamleeds.co.uk.

Led by a team of music-loving volunteers united by a shared goal – to raise money to fight poverty and suffering around the world - the multi-venue, music takeover promises an electric day of live entertainment and festival fun.

All proceeds from the festival’s ticket sales will support the work international charity Oxfam delivers around the globe.

Fiona Dillon, Oxjam Leeds 2016 Takeover manager, said: “We’re really turning up the volume this year – Oxjam Leeds is going to be huge.

“This festival is all about 
offering emerging artists a 
platform and I’m so proud 
to say that we’ve already signed up some of the best new 
talent in the country to perform.

“Every music fan wants to say that they were the first to see the next big thing and Oxjam Leeds is one of those festivals that offers punters that rare opportunity.

“I passionately believe we can use music to come together to help eradicate poverty and suffering.”

Tickets are priced at £10 each giving festival-goers access to ten hours of live music.
