The Festival aims to raise money for Nottinghamshire homeless charity ‘Framework.’
Nottingham’s Homeless Crisis is ever-growing. In what is set to be a ferocious winter, ‘Beat The Streets’ aims to put a stop to such a horrid issue. A stellar line up of local bands have come on board to fundraise in aid of the homeless on 28 January 2018.
Occurring across numerous central city venues, local bands such as Sleaford Mods, Ferocious Dog, The Invisible Orchestra, Lawnmower Deth, Rolo Tomassi, Kagoule and Eyre Llew will all be performing live on the day. An impressive array of genres will also act as a celebration of the city’s evolving music scene.
Other confirmed acts include Georgie, Tusk, Nina Smith, Vigilantes, Super Furniture, Lisa Hendricks, Rob Green, Jimi Mack, Nactus Kunan, Brown Lion Zoo, Crosa Rosa, Brad Dear Band, Bone Cult, Babe Punch and Ashfields.
Speaking about the event, DHP Family’s George Akins said: “For just a suggested donation of a tenner, Beat the Streets is a fantastic way to see top national touring bands that have already sold out venues such as Rescue Rooms and Rock City and raise funds for a great cause at the same time.
“streams of new talent such as Babe Punch, Crosa Rosa and ‘Eudaemonia Live’ favourites Brown Lion Zoo all feature.”
“It is increasingly evident that we have a growing problem with homelessness in the city. Beat the Streets aims to be a force for positive change, using music to bring together the Nottingham community and raise vital funds for homeless people in need.”
The line up features superb headline-level bands such as Sleaford Mods who recently returned to Rock City in what was a memorable November homecoming. Beyond this, notable streams of new talent such as Babe Punch, Crosa Rosa and ‘Eudaemonia Live’ favourites Brown Lion Zoo all feature.
In many ways it is the perfect day to scout you’re future favourite Nottingham bands whilst also raising money for a great cause. A host of special guests will also bring even more excitement to what is already set to be a memorable day.
All proceeds raised from ticket sales and merchandise will be donated to Framework, the Nottinghamshire charity dedicated to bettering the lives of homeless people. Since Framework started in 2001, it has become one of the largest organisations of its type in the country, helping more than 11,000 each year to overcome crisis and improve their lives.
Up to 80 bands and acts to be announced before the event itself. Ticket link:
