Basement Jaxxhave been confirmed to launch this year’s Oxfam’s Oxjam music festival on 28th September.
The gigs will be played at a specially converted Oxfam charity shop in London and will be limited to 150 audience members per night.
VV Brown said of the gigs: “I’ve spent the summer supporting Oxfam’s campaigns at music festivals around the country, but the charity shop shows are the highlight of the festival season for me.”
She added: “Playing intimate shows up close to the audience is loads of fun, and to do it in an Oxfam shop will be even better.”
Editors front-man Tom Smith agreed: “Putting on shows in Oxfam's high street stores is a great idea, these places are part of everyone's daily lives these days, come September they'll also be the hottest ticket in town.”
Smith, along with the rest of the Editors will join Just Jack, Nitin Sawhney and legendary drummer Tony Allen who will also play the month long festival which ends on 1st October.
The location of the unlikely venue still remains a secret but will sell second-hand music by day, before turning into a gig venue to play host to the series of intimate performances.
More acts are said to be announced, with Stereo MCs, Shlomo and Good Shoes also being confirmed.
The Oxjam music festival hopes to continue to raise money for world wide poverty and this year aims to help those who have been drastically affected by climate change.
Tickets are available tomorrow (4th September) from 9.00 am at www.wegottickets.com/oxjam.
