All-star Bristol lineup announced for one-day Beat The Streets festival on Sunday 28th January 2018

Posted on: 10 Jan 2018

The Full lineup has now been announced for Beat The Streets, a one-day festival to be held at Thekla on Sunday 28th January, with all proceeds going towards homeless charity Caring in Bristol. Split between a day-time and evening billing, the lineup features acclaimed Bristol-based acts like Futureboogie, Gorgon Sound, Harvey Causon and many more, with one special guest still to be announced!

Beat The Streets Festival champions local talent while doing essential fundraising work to combat Britain's homelessness crisis.

The all-day event showcases some of the best talent to come out of Bristol in recent years, separated into a daytime billing from the 3pm opening until 10pm, following by a stellar lineup of DJs from 10pm through to the 3am close. Tickets for the event start at just £5, and can be found here, with proceeds going to Caring in Bristol - a charity aimed at helping homeless people in Bristol amid a growing nationwide homelessness crisis.

 

Highlights on the day-time billing include Bristol-based band Rozelle, and the unique electronica of Harvey Causon, certainly not to be missed. Rozelle are known to captivate audiences with their dreamy soundscapes, backed up by an element of 90s nostalgia with their mix of electro sound bites and gritty guitars. Harvey Causon, meanwhile, is one of Bristol's most exciting young artists, having recently recorded a session at the BBC's Maida Vale studios, showcasing his head-turning blend of rich vocals and minimalist delivery over seriously strong production.

 

As for the evening, some of Bristol's best and brightest DJs are turning out for Beat The Streets, including Gorgon Sound (the alias of ever-popular duo Kahn & Neek), renowned party purveyors Futureboogie and many more. Hailing from Bristol, the recognisable beats of Gorgon Sound are firmly rooted in the city's famous heritage of soundsystem music. Futureboogie are known throughout Bristol and beyond for their knack for putting together some of the best parties in the city, with regular spots at festivals such as Love Saves The Day and Tokyo World, as well as hosting club nights throughout the year.

 

All proceeds from Beat The Streets will go to homeless charity Caring in Bristol. In 2017 alone, Caring in Bristol provided accommodation for 127 homeless people previously sleeping rough in the city, helped 132 young people to access housing services, and welcomed over 150 guests during the Caring at Christmas project, aimed at providing beds and meals over the Christmas and New Year period. For more information on Caring in Bristol you can visit their website.

 

Please note that tickets for the Beat The Streets day-time Live Show and evening Club Show are sold separately at £5 each. Tickets for the event on Sunday 28th January can be found here - for more information and to follow updates, check out the Beat The Streets Bristol Facebook page.
