Beat The Streets is returning to the area in 2023 with bands galore for a good cause
Renowned locally for the vital funds it has raised to support the Notts-based Framework Housing Association and the awareness it has brought to the growing homelessness crisis locally, the festival will return to city center venues on Sunday. January 29.
Beat The Streets has already confirmed over 25 artists including Ferocious Dog, Lawnmower Deth, Palm Reader, alt blk era, Girlband, The Chase and many more.
The festival will take place at major venues across the city including Rock City, Rescue Rooms and Bodega, with all proceeds from tickets, bar and merchandise going directly to Framework.
Since its launch in 2018, the festival has become a very established date in the calendar, known for the financial support and awareness it brings to Framework, and its support of artists from the region who regularly feature prominently throughout the along the bill.
This year will be no exception with the news that legendary Nottinghamshire folk-punk band Ferocious Dog will be headlining.
The band are long-time supporters of Beat The Streets, having previously played at the inaugural event in 2018. They are known for their support of charities for the homeless, regularly encouraging fans to donate to food banks at their shows.
English thrash metal heroes Lawnmower Deth are also set to return. Formed in Notts in 1987 and signed to iconic Nottingham label Earache, the band came together when asked to support Bullet For My Valentine at Alexandra Palace in 2008, and since then have graced six times the Download Festival.
British hardcore band Palm Reader will also reappear, with the band’s gigs having garnered star acclaim and a loyal fan base.
Over the past five years Beat The Streets have brought the music community together to raise awareness and funds for a vital cause, with over 15,000 tickets sold and over £320,000 raised for Framework.
On behalf of Framework, Fundraising and Communications Manager Claire Eden said: “There could never be a better time to raise money to help those experiencing homelessness and to provide additional support in mental health to those who need it most.”
