Following the huge success of last year’s event, which raised £100k for homeless charity, Framework, with a headline set from Sleaford Mods, Beat The Streets have announced that the festival will be returning for another year.

“We’re extremely excited to build on the success of our first event. Although the money raised at our first Beat The Streets made a significant difference, it’s evident that there is so much more to be done to address the homelessness problem in the city. We’re glad we can play a part in raising funds to help make a difference where it is so desperately needed”

DHP Family Owner George Akins

“The inaugural Beat The Streets festival was an unparalleled fundraising success – by far the biggest event we have ever had the privilege of being involved in. Its legacy was two-fold. The £100,000 it raised helped us to support dozens of homeless people off the streets and is still being used to this day. The enormous boost it gave to our profile, meanwhile, allowed us to engage with audiences old and new and get our message out to more people than ever before. We are thrilled by the prospect of this happening again and can’t wait for the music to start​”
