An earlier date isn’t the only change to Europe’s largest street art festival. For 2020, UPFEST will take over a new huge venue, Greville Smyth Park, for the event’s first ever ‘green field’ festival, in addition to The Tobacco Factory, the original Upfest venue.

The boards and canvases previously found across a multitude of South Bristol venues will be brought together for a final weekend-long celebration of street art in the spectacular park, the first time the space has been used for a festival.
 
The street work traditionally painted during the festival weekend, will be created in the fortnight leading up to the festival weekend; giving more people the chance to witness these spectacular creations come to life first hand. The murals will be complete for viewing while over 250 artists paint live alongside music stages and food and drink experiences.
