Oxford Art Factory’s 4th Birthday

We have a feeling that the OAF will be in a decidedly debaucherous mood for their Big Four. Put on your prettiest and enjoy the revelry.

A fourth birthday celebration is usually populated with such delights as creaming soda, snakes and frogs, awkward family photos, at least one pair of skinned knees, and a Woman’s Day swimming pool cake. But we have a feeling that Oxford Art Factory will be in a decidedly more debaucherous mood for their Big Four.

Since they opened their doors in 2008, the Oxford Art Factory has played host to a mess of memories - seeing the stage lit up with Neil Finn's Pajama Club, the first Falling Joys show in 15 years and a solo record launch from The Birthday Partys Mick Harvey, amongst others. And the Gallery Bar has had its walls brushed over with some incredible art more times than we can count.

Entry is free on the night, with the drinks flowing freely until the last drop runs out (so you won’t have to chug a bottle of Passion Pop in the back alley beforehand). Then enjoy the massive lineup: Deep Sea Arcade, Step-Panther, Betty Airs, Peppercorn, Rockets, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Mother & Son, The James Manson Blues Band and The Faults, plus Friday I’m In Love and OAF Gallery Bar DJs.

Put on your prettiest and enjoy the revelry – and remember, pics or it didn’t happen.
