Last year, around £500,000 was raised through the Oxjam campaign.
The main event was made up of a number of young bands showcasing new music (a theme which is hoped to progress into the future). A smaller, acoustic event then took place in which a few local bands played several short sets.
Almost £400 was raised from Oxjam Cardiff Chill 2007.
In 2007, the Oxjam Cardiff Swap also took place for the first time. The swap started back in June 2007 with a small "Oxjam" badge which was then swapped for a CD. This in turn was exchanged for an "aloe vera plant which was finally swapped for a bamboo chair and table set. The swap is set to continue into 2008.
Plans are currently underway to make Oxjam Cardiff Chill 2008 even bigger and better than before. Currently new composers and music is being sourced within the South Wales area which could possibly premier at the event in October.
The Oxjam Cardiff Swap 2008 is set to return later in January 2008.
Further advances and new elements for Oxjam Cardiff Chill 2008 will also be added.
