THE biggest live street art festival in Europe will return with more artists than ever before painting more than 30,000 sq ft of outdoor walls across Bristol.
Upfest is a free festival celebrating street art, with talented artists visiting from 20 different countries.
Bedminster’s streets will be filled with all sorts of different artwork alongside music acts including hip-hop, R&B, beatbox artists, pop-up cafés and more.
Festival favourite My Dog Sighs has created the logo for the festival and will be painting live at the event.
One of Bristol’s most famous artists, Inkie, will also return to his home town for the show to paint his work onto a huge wall.
The brightly-coloured creations of German artist Thierry Noir will hit the streets of Bedminster for the first time and LONAC, from Croatia, will be showing off some of his surrealist imagery at the event.
The free festival will run from July 25-27 across multiple venues along North Street in Bedminster including the Tobacco Factory, North Street Green, The Hare and St Francis Church.
