The first wave of acts for Nottingham’s annual Beat The Streets charity music festival have been announced.

Over 30+ local and national music artists have been confirmed to play at the Nottingham city centre event on Sunday 26th January 2020. 

Hosted across five stages at Nottingham venues that include; Rock City, Rescue Rooms, The Bodega and Rough Trade, all proceeds raised from ticket sales, merchandise and bar sales in DHP venues will once again be donated to Framework; the Nottinghamshire charity dedicated to bettering the lives of homeless people.

After raising a grand total of £167,000 over the previous two events, the third edition of the festival will bring some of the most in-demand acts together on one bill, all of whom will all play a significant part in helping the festival to achieve its main aim: helping to eradicate homelessness in the city of Nottingham.

Last year’s proceeds enabled Framework to open the doors of their Sneinton homeless shelter all year round, which has provided ten direct access accommodation places for people sleeping rough in Nottingham.

One of the first acts to be confirmed for the festival line-up is Reflekter.

Fresh from scoring a Top 5 entry in the Official Vinyl Singles Chart with the anthemic ‘75 Trips’ and selling out a show at The Bodega, the rock ‘n’ roll four-piece will arrive at the festival riding a wave of acclaim. 

 After winning Nusic’s ‘Future Sound of Nottingham’ competition earlier in the year, and therefore earning himself a spot opening the main stage at Splendour Festival, 2019 has been a breakout year for Remy. The singer-songwriter has confirmed his place on the festival line up this week.

Sheffield rockers Sheafs return to Nottingham via the festival fresh off the back of a UK headline tour, which included a recent riotous show at Rescue Rooms in October.

Also joining the bill is Nottingham soul sensation Mollie Ralph, whose contemporary twist on the genre has gained her plaudits from the likes of Dean Jackson on BBC Introducing, LeftLion and Nusic, and has also led to a sold out debut EP launch show at Rough Trade in February. 

The full list of acts confirmed for the first announcement are: Beat Combo, Black Cats and Magpies, Black Shiver, BLLE, Brad Dear, Callum Kerrigan, Celestines, Circle of Light – Live, Cucamaras, Dacodac, Eyre Llew, Fading Blonde, Gallery 47, Jaymal Davis, Jerub, Jinda Biant, Louis Croft, Megatrain, Mollie Ralph, Nactus Kunan, Reflekter, Remy, Ryan Brooks , San Junipero, Sancho Panza, Sheafs, Star Botherers, Sunflower Thieves, Tash Bird, Tori Sheard, Vega Bay, Velvet Blush, Witch of The East, Witches Mark.
