The Hustle Team would like to thank the hard work and commitment of the people who make Hockley Hustle happen.

The promoters who brilliantly programme their stages, all of the fantastic performers, all of our wonderful volunteers, our sponsors and our supporters across the city, the hugely helpful and accomodating Hockley venues and their staff and anyone who helps the festival in any way shape or form.

To everyone who buys a ticket to the festival, thank you, enjoy yourselves and know that you and all of the above (and much more) mean that we are able to support some fantastic local charities with over £150,000 donated since 2006.

We have seen first hand the incredible difference these donations make to peoples lives. THANK YOU, EVERYONE. Be proud, Notts.
