Established back in 2006, Oxjam is the UK's largest music festival, and is set to enter the Guinness Book of Records this year with 31 Takeover events taking part across the country simultaneously. Since its inception, more than 36,000 musicians have played to over 750,000 people at around 3,000 Oxjam events nationwide.

The Oxjam Brick Lane Takeover Festival is the icing on the Oxjam Takeover festival’s cake and was specially chosen to feature in a documentary (produced by multiple award-winning, Sandhya Suri) to be used for national promotional purposes.  It will also feature on community television channels and is anticipated to be aired on Channel 4!

The Oxjam Brick Lane Takeover project takes place on Saturday 23rd October 2010  across some fantastic venues, including 93 Feet East, Café 1001, Vibe Bar, the Brickhouse, Concrete, Rough Trade, Corbert Place and the Old Truman Brewery.
