Beat the Streets is back!
The fundraising music festival Beat The Streets, organised by leading music promoter DHP Family, is happening across Nottingham once again on Sunday 30 January.
The festival has become renowned locally for the vital funds it raises to support Framework and for raising awareness of the crisis for homeless people locally.
More than 50 great bands and solo artists will feature on stages across Nottingham city centre including Rock City, Rescue Rooms, Stealth and Bodega. All proceeds from ticket sales, bar sales and merchandising will go directly to Framework.
Launched in 2018, the previous three editions of Beat The Streets have brought Nottingham’s independent music community together, sold more than 10,000 tickets, and raised more than £270,000 to support work to tackle homelessness.
Having taken an enforced break as an in-person event in 2021, festival organisers are delighted that Beat the Streets is back this month. Festival booker Joseph Patten said: “After being away for a year, we can’t wait for Beat The Streets 2022. We’re immensely proud of the money and awareness we’ve been able to raise to improve the lives of homeless people in Nottingham: it will be wonderful to have this brilliant day-long celebration of live music and giving back happening in our community again.”
Beat The Streets is Framework’s biggest and most well-known partner led-fundraising event. It raises much-needed funds to support our work with homeless people in Nottingham and beyond, and also allows us to provide additional mental health support to those who need it most.
Massive thanks to DHP and to all the musicians, technicians and others who will so generously give their services to make this brilliant day an outstanding success.
