Europe's largest Street Art & Graffiti festival | Upfest

UPFEST PRESENTS

Since our first festival in 2008, it has always been free to register for an artist space, and for visitors to attend. We want to keep it that way so this year we'll be adapting our approach and hosting a 17 day cultural programme.

Instead of our weekend festival in the park, Upfest will return in 2024 in a new guise, with new artworks being painted across 2 weeks. UPFEST PRESENTS...will pop-up at multiple venues across Bedminster and wider BS3 with free to attend workshops, live painting, artist talks, arts activities, panel discussions, theatre, comedy and tours exploring the area.

Get involved, help make UPFEST PRESENTS even more spectacular!

Artist registration is now Closed

Upfest Projects

Are you a business looking to enhance your surroundings or a creative agency, architect or property developer working with a client looking for something unique? Are you a homeowner or art collector wanting to bring a mural to your home? Then speak to our creative team.

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.

We can work with you on your artistic project in a number of different ways - from concept and creative planning through to delivery - to create artworks that bring your vision to life and have the kind of impact you’re looking for.
