Q. Hello Oracle!

Can you tell me what are they doing with all those wristbrands? Are they volunteers?

The Oracle replies:

The Xylobands arrive in boxes with little plastic tabs that they need pulling out of position before the audience arrives so that's what they're doing - removing the tab that activates them.
They're not Oxfam volunteers but the photo was taken by someone who works for Oxfam who was on the MX tour.
