Nottingham’s music community is coming together to raise money and awareness for homelessness this month as the city welcomes Beat The Streets Festival for 2018.
The festival will be supporting Nottingham-based homelessness charity Framework with all proceeds from ticket sales and merchandise going to them.
The multi-venue event takes place on January 28th and 29th across some of the best stages in Nottingham, including Rock City, Rescue Rooms, Red Bar and The Bodega.
Over 80 national and local artists are set to perform covering a range of genres and music styles.
Punk duo, Sleaford Mods, are a stand-out name amongst the event’s line up, having been a major part of Nottingham’s music scene for over a decade.
The band’s vocalist Jason Williamson said: “We hope we can help raise good money for the growing number of people sleeping on Nottingham’s streets.”
Also performing are previous Rock City sell-outs Ferocious Dog, whilst up and coming indie/rock acts Vega Bay, TUSK and Babe Punch will also be attracting large interest.
Other acts include Ashfields, Nina Smith, Lawnmower Deth, The Invisible Orchestra, Kagoule, Eyre Llew and Rolo Tomassi.
Framework charity has been helping to get people off the streets of Nottingham for 17 years and has since become one of the biggest charities of its kind in the United Kingdom.
Tickets for the event are currently on sale and can be purchased through a minimum £5 donation.
