Returning on Sunday, January 28, 2024, the annual charity fundraiser festival Beat The Streets has announced a stellar line-up, featuring over 50 artists across multiple venues in Nottingham.
Established in 2018, Beat The Streets has played a pivotal role in bringing the music community in Nottingham together, raising awareness and providing vital funds for Framework Housing Association. The charity, which delivers housing, health, employment, and care services to people with a diverse range of needs across the East Midlands, provides support to over 18,000 individuals a year.
The event smashed the £400k milestone at last year’s festival and at a time where support in the community is valued more than ever, Beat The Streets hopes to, once again, be able to raise a significant amount for the charity.
Once again, the line-up showcases local talent from across the East Midlands, something that has become a staple of the event.
Performing across the event will be some of the most exciting emerging and established talent on the Nottingham scene, including Girlband, Alfie Sharp, Chloe Rodgers, and many more.
The festival will take place across several major venues in the city centre, including Rock City, Rescue Rooms, Stealth, Rough Trade, and The Bodega, allowing the line-up to showcase their talent on some of Nottingham’s most iconic stages.

Other artists performing at Beat The Streets 2024 include Airport Dad, Bloodworm, Cost of Loving, Kai-Otee, Lois, and Set in Motion.
Previously, the event has seen performances from the likes of Jake Bugg, Sleaford Mods and Divorce, with the event’s success reigning for the past five years.
All proceeds from the sale of tickets, bar, and merchandise will go directly to Framework to help combat homelessness.
The £89,500 raised at the 2023 event was used to fund the build of a block of eight purpose-built flats in Forest Fields to be named Akins House after DHP directors George and Sean Akins, in recognition of the ongoing support provided by the annual festival. Of the flats, MD George Akins said: “Everyone at DHP Family is very pleased to have been able to raise more vital funds for Framework in 2023. We’re incredibly proud to bring the Nottingham music community together each January for such an important cause, and proud of the support that Beat The Streets has funded.”
Tickets for Beat The Streets 2024, taking place on Sunday, January 28, are available to purchase here, with all participating venues allowing access to individuals aged 14+.
