Our aim is to raise vital funds to support homeless people in need.

 

Taking place on Sunday 27th January 2019, the festival will again host more than 80 national and local acts playing across 10+ stages in venues across the city centre. All proceeds raised from ticket sales, merchandise and bar sales in DHP venues will be donated to local homeless charities, including Framework.

 

The money raised at the 2018 event enabled Framework to hire two new members of staff, one working within the outreach team and another in the role of social worker, providing front-line help to rough sleepers and providing specialist support. The funds also enabled the provision of more supported accommodation; more temporary beds at local B&Bs; more reconnection services; and more support for people who spend their days on the streets.

 

Highlights from Beat The Streets 2018 included sets from Sleaford Mods, Ferocious Dog, Nina Smith, Lone, and Lawnmower Deth, as well as a charity raffle with prizes from Splendour Festival, London Grammar, and Billy Bragg.

 

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.
