Billed as an event to "celebrate Oxford's most creative postcode", OX4 takes place on Oxtober 10 and will feature music, of course, comedy, film and art. There's even a sort-of support slot for Oxjam, who will be fund-raising and speaking to people about their climate-change campaign.
Robin Bennett, organiser of Truck festival said:
“We've wanted to bring that SXSW vibe to our home town for ages – and now we have. We're really excited about showing off just what The Cowley Road has to offer and although it's indoors feel free to wear your wellies and get into that festival mood.”
Here's who they've got lined up to play the event:
The Big Pink
This Town Needs Guns
...and a fair few more, too.
