Beat The Streets Festival has announced the second wave of acts for its 2020 edition.
Nottingham icon Jake Bugg joins the line-up after his show at Rock City earlier this year sold out in less than a day. A household name locally for well over a decade and known internationally since the release of his eponymous debut LP in 2012, he has headlined festivals, sold out arenas and released a further three records.
Petrie’s unique takes on life, love and politics have appealed to the masses – so much so that debut studio album, Queer As Folk, raised £18,000 in a fortnight via a Kickstarter. Bamalamasingsong are a unique musical outfit that bring communal singing to Nottingham – removing the conventional singer, Bamalamasingsong instead play hits from Elvis to Radiohead and allow the crowd to be the front-person.
Also returning once again will be the massively popular tombola – this year sees prizes from Splendour Festival, Dot To Dot Festival, Rock City, Broadway Cinema, HMV, Brewdog and many more great prizes – all proceeds from the tombola will be donated to Framework.
All the newly announced acts are below:
Alfie Sharp / Arch Femmesis / Bamalamasingsong / Benjamin Ziec and the Rarebreeds / Emzae / Falling Off Maps / Gadzz & Friends / Grace Lee / Grace Petrie / Jacob Fowler / Jake Bugg / Jalle / JJ Lovegrove / John Paul / Jonny Olley / Katie Keddie / Kynch / Lacey / Left Hand Lane / LNC / Luxury Stranger / Mid November / Obi Rudo / Seven Rivers / The Mocking Jays / Those Howlin’ Sounds.
