Beat the Streets – Nottingham’s newest music festival, with a purpose.
Beat The Streets is a major one-day, multi-venue music festival taking place in aid of Framework on Sunday 28th January 2018.
The festival, organised by one of the UK's leading concert promoters - Nottingham-based DHP Family, is a chance to sample some of Nottingham's finest musical talent in some terrific venues, enjoy the company of like-minded music-lovers… and support homeless people at the same time.
With acts like Ferocious Dog, The Invisible Orchestra and Sleaford Mods on a bill of more than 80 artists offering around 50 hours of music over one single day, it promises to be a fantastic event which will raise a considerable sum to support our work with street homeless people locally.
But what we really love about Beat The Streets is what it represents – a community coming together as one to address a serious local issue.
Indeed, this really is so much more than a music festival. It is a prime example of what people can achieve when they combine their desire to help with their unique skills and expertise.
From the artists themselves to the many hundreds of people working away behind the scenes to get them on stage, this event will be driven along by a heartfelt desire to help people who are affected by homelessness.
We are delighted that, in putting on this event, the organisers and artists are investing their faith in our work.
All proceeds from ticket sales, merchandising and bar sales will be used to assist our Street Outreach Team which works directly with people sleeping rough on our streets. It will help to get people off the streets by providing the resources to compile detailed assessments of their needs and, if necessary, to provide temporary hotel accommodation.
We are truly grateful to all at DHP and their collaborators for getting this event off the ground and hope to see as many people as possible at venues on the day.
