Brett Anderson and Patrick Wolf are among the artists set to play gigs in a London branch of the charity shop Oxfam.

The shows will launch the fifth year of the charity’s Oxjam fundraising music festival and will take place at the end of September. Fatboy Slim, Charlie Simpson, Man Like Me and Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet are also all set to take part. The shows will also see the launch of ‘Kinshasa One Two’, the album by DRC Music, which was recently recorded by Damon Albarn in the Democratic Republic of Congo to raise funds for Oxfam.

The shows will take place in an as-yet-unannounced London branch of Oxfam. The shop in which the gigs will take place will be revealed the week before the shows. It will sell second-hand records during the day and be converted into a venue in the evening.

Of the shows Brett Anderson said:

In the early-'90s, Suede bought most of their clothes in Oxfam shops. It was always somewhere you could find cheap, interesting old things that no-one else had and, for a few years, it pretty much defined our style, so I feel a massive sense of homecoming with the Oxjam gig. The Oxfam shop is a great British institution that no high street should be without, and the Oxjam gigs are an extension of this blend of philanthropy and offbeat style.

The line-up so far is:

Fatboy Slim, Kissy Sell Out, Man Like Me (September 26)
Brett Anderson, Patrick Wolf, Ghostpoet (27)
Charlie Simpson plus more TBA (28)
DRC Music album launch feat. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Richard Russell (XL Records), Kwes (Warp Records) and more. (29)
