The Oxjam Shetland Takeover returns for it's 3rd year this weekend - on Sat 25th October.
4 venues | Dozens of local artists | 1 wristband
From 2pm until 2am, Lerwick will come alive with various gigs of all sorts of genres, dotted all around the town, showcasing the great musical talents Shetland has to offer.
This 12 HOUR musical extravaganza will take place in the Lerwick Boating Club, Posers, Baroc and the Lerwick Legion. There will something for everyone - folk, metal, blues, rock, acoustic and jazz.
The gigs at each venue are staggered throughout the day, so you can attend as much as you like, hopping from one place to another with an all access wristband.
Wristbands for 18+ are priced at £10 and you will have full access to all the venues - provided you get there early enough!
Wristbands for under 18s are priced at £6 and that can get you into the Legion and the Lerwick Boating Club.
The Oxjam Takeover is a family friendly day - children under 5 can attend for free, and must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
This year, Baroc will host our Oxjam afterparty. Entry will be £2 with a wristband, and £5 without.
Oxjam is organised entirely by volunteers, and all musicians are donated their time and skills for nothing. All proceeds go to Oxfam as part of their annual, UK-wide music festival to raise money and awareness for their important work around the world.
Local music, global impact.
