The charity fundraiser is renowned locally for the vital funds it has raised in support of Framework Housing Association and the awareness it has brought to the rising homelessness crisis in the Nottingham area.

It will return to venues in the city on January 30.

Performing across the day at venues in the city will be: Blood Wizard, Church of the Cosmic Skull, Do Nothing, Georgie, Jerub, Reflekter, and Tori Sheard, alongside many others, with more to be added early next year.

The festival will take place across major venues including Rock City, Rescue Rooms, Stealth and Bodega, with all proceeds from tickets, bar, and merchandise going directly to Framework.

Having taken a forced hiatus from an in-person event in 2021, festival organisers are delighted to be bringing the event back to Nottingham in January.

Festival booker Joseph Patten explained: “After being away for a year, we can’t wait for Beat The Streets 2022.

"We’re immensely proud of the money and awareness we’ve been able to raise to improve the lives of homeless people in Nottingham, and it will be a wonderful celebration to have a day of live music in our community again.”
