Festival booker Joseph Patten said: “We’re over the moon to be back for 2024 with another brilliant line-up that recognises the amazing talent on show in our city. Every year it’s a real highlight to see the music community coming out in full force to support such an important cause.
“We smashed the £400k milestone at last year’s festival so now we’re ready to do it all again and see how much more we can raise for Framework.
“Sadly, now more than ever, we’re seeing how important homeless charities are, so the team here are proud to work towards supporting the vital work that Framework does, and we’re looking forward to putting on a top day celebrating Nottingham’s great scene.”
