Charity festival Beat The Streets has today announced the first wave of artists for its 2019 edition.
Amongst the 40+ acts confirmed so far is popular metal band Evil Scarecrow, as well as a former Forest and England footballer Stuart Pearce in conversation with RamAlbumClub.
Taking place on Sunday 27 January 2019, the festival spans 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 Framework.
Nottingham metallers Evil Scarecrow have been captivating audiences for many years. From playing in local pubs, to holding their own on Bloodstock Festival’s main stage, the band are renowned for their epic live shows.
Stuart Pearce is a name beloved by many a football fan. The former Forest captain is best known for his 12 years with the club and winning the League Cup twice. A long-term punk fan whose favourite band is The Stranglers, Stuart will be in conversation with RamAlbumClub’s Martin Fitzgerald.
Elsewhere on the line-up is a host of up and coming local artists, showcasing the breadth of talent within the city. Rock-pop duo Brotherhood, former Future Sound of Nottingham winners, played their biggest headline show to date earlier this year with a sell-out gig at Rescue Rooms.
Alternative folk-artist Keto, a BBC 6music favourite, has played Green Man Festival and Glastonbury Festival, toured with the likes of Julia Jacklin and Low and was selected for PRS For Music’s ‘Women Make Music’ fund.
Don’t Forget Rupert have gone from strength to strength this year, playing sold-out shows in Rescue Rooms and Rough Trade, releasing their EP ‘Full Circle’ and performing sets at Splendour Festival and Tramlines.
