Europe's largest Street Art & Graffiti festival | Upfest

Make Upfest 2024 happen

Since our first festival in 2008, Upfest has always been free to register for an artist space and for visitors to attend. We want to keep it that way. In 2022, we had over 1,000 applications for 400 festival artist spaces and around 50,000 people joined us over the festival weekend at Greville Smyth Park and the Tobacco Factory in Bedminster, Bristol. There’s a huge amount that goes into running a festival on this scale and keeping it as safe, accessible and welcoming as possible.

Costs have gone up by over 15% on the last festival and even after finding ways to bring the budget down, we have a significant amount to raise. Whether you can make a one-off donation, join our exclusive Patreon community, become a sponsor, or get involved as a volunteer, every contribution makes a real difference to how we’re able to bring the festival back in 2024.

Upfest has worked on multiple place making initiatives including the Bristol Hearts, In collaboration with We Are Plaster, Bristol Business Improvement District and Visit Bristol we designed and painted 374 socially distanced giant hearts across 3 sites in Bristol city centre for the #BristolTogether campaign. These hearts were to encourage and promote the safe reopening of our city after the lockdown of 2020.
