After Tottenham Chances was caught up in the riots in August, the event will celebrate the local community as well as raising awareness and funds for those in need internationally.
“I was inspired by the spontaneous events of the ‘60s,” said event organiser Graham Hornsby. “So far there’s great variety in the bands, from rapping to old music hall. Considering what’s happened in Tottenham recently, I think this is a great way of celebrating community by helping people worldwide.”
Oxjam’s month of shows around the country was launched last week in London with gigs featuring Fatboy Slim, Brett Anderson, Charlie Simpson and Damon Albarn’s DRC Music project. You can read the VF verdict here.
