Upfest Registration

Artists Registration is now open!

In June this year Upfest catered for 250 artists from 17 different countries for a weekend of 'Live' Urban painting spanning all types of street art and Illustration. We had over 300 artists apply so 80% got a spot at the festival, this year on the Jubilee bank holiday weekend, 2nd, 3rd and 4th of June 2012, we are hoping to once again cater for 250 artists, with interest growing massively each year from UK and International artists we are expecting registrations to hit at least 400.

We would very much appreciate if all sections of the registration could be completed in full, registration is open from NOW until the 24th of February, all artists will be advised if they have been successful by the 5th of March, International artists will be advised as soon as possible due to the booking of flights.

Once you have registered please allow us some time to send you back an info pack, this does not confirm your spot at the festival, but will give you all the info you need about coming to the festival.

Thanks for registering and making Upfest what it is, here's to a great 2012!

The Upfest web monkey has been at the sherry a little too much this christmas. As a result of this high-spiritedness, applications made for Upfest 2012 in the past 24hrs won't have made it to HQ. The problem has been fixed and the web monkey sent to sleep it off. If you have applied in the past 24hrs - Could you re enter your details.
