Courtesy Upfest


Europe’s largest street art and graffiti festival

As Banksy’s home town, it’s only fitting that Upfest, a celebration of street art and street culture, has become one of Bristol's landmark events, attracting international artists and audiences.

Upfest brings hundreds of the best street artists from across the world to South Bristol where they create colourful murals on the walls and hoardings of Bedminster, Southville and Ashton.

Tens of thousands of visitors come to see the artists paint live, leaving a wonderful open air gallery as the art remains for locals and visitors to enjoy until the next festival comes round again.

From humble beginnings in 2008 it is now grown to become Europe’s leading street art festival, with an affordable art sale, music stages and art workshops to round off a spectacular event.
