An all day music festival taking over multiple venues around Nottingham city centre, in support of the homeless.

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.
“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.”
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.
Beat The Streets is being delivered by DHP Family in collaboration with local organisations and music groups including I’m Not from London; Farmyard Records; Hockley Hustle and Rough Trade.
The money raised from Beat the Streets will go towards improving the effectiveness of Framework’s Street Outreach Team. This includes putting qualified social workers in place to start assessments on the streets, towards emergency accommodation to protect people in below zero conditions and towards resettlement workers who enable smooth transitions from the street to a tenancy.
Tickets are on sale from alt.tickets and Gigantic at a recommended price of £10 (minimum donation £5) with the option to donate more. One ticket will allow access for 14+ to all participating venues. Additional donations can be made at JustGiving
