Beat the Streets – the all-day music festival staged to help the homeless – was an epic success smashing through its fundraising target of £100,000.
Taking place across venues in Nottingham on Sunday 28 January, thousands turned out to watch storming sets from the likes of Sleaford Mods, Ferocious Dog, The Invisible Orchestra, Lawnmower Deth, Rolo Tomassi, Kagoule and Eyre Llew.
No one can turn a blind eye to the homeless crisis in the UK right now. We wanted to do our bit, so offered free PR support to the organisers DHP Family. Our relationships with press contacts regionally, nationally and in the music trade came in handy as media were all over the event.

The money raised from Beat the Streets will go to Framework, the charity dedicated to improving the lives of homeless people. It came from a combination of ticket sales, donations, bar takings, merchandise income, guest list donations and collection buckets. Many of the artists also donated their proceeds from merchandise sales on the day.
What’s more, the event was so successful that DHP Family has now confirmed the festival will become an annual event! The next Beat the Streets is scheduled for Sunday 27 January 2019.
