This weekend saw our first ‘Upfest‘ – an urban street art festival based just around the corner from us in Southville, Bristol. I got a little bit snap happy with all the colour surrounding us, and thought I’d share some of the pictures here.
Upfest is an annual festival, which has taken place every year on the first weekend of June since 2008. Boards are erected especially for the paint jam, which also takes place on shop shutters and the sides of buildings, and attracts hundreds of graffiti artists from all over.
After working our way down North Street we ended up at the Tobacco Factory, which hosted DJ’s, beatboxers, bands and market stalls.
However as much as we all appreciated the paintings, the party atmosphere was a tad on the loud side for us and we retreated to The Hare, where we could sit and chat quietly, and relax!
