Upfest street art festival was created in Bristol in 2008 and has taken place most of the years since. It is organised by three enthusiastic people and generally centres around the Tobacco Factory in Bedminster, Bristol. The Upfest crew have also attended events like Nass festival, Boardmasters and put on a number of artist exhibitions in their Bedminster gallery. There are usually a load of workshops and events (Like Secret Walls) which run over the same weekend as part of the festival.
This year the it’s on 25th-27th July, it’s well worth getting down to. As they had last year off, this year should be bigger than ever.
