MUSIC filled the air as a warm-up festival took over the city.

The Oxjam Southampton 2014 warm-up weekend saw bands, acoustic acts, DJs and poets showcase their talent at venues across the city.

There was a real buzz at Mettricks Tea and Coffee House as revellers flocked to see top acts, including accordionist Anza McCloskey.

The Joiners, The Mango Bar, the Art House, and Goblets were other city venues that took part in the event.

The warm-up was held ahead of the fundraising Oxjam Takeover festival in Southampton from October 17-19.
