UPFEST, crafted with POSCA, is renowned for bringing together street arts freshest talents and this summer festival fans can expect to see incredible murals emerging in the streets of Bedminster starting from 5th of May. Following three weeks of street painting, the festival weekend will see hundreds of artists painting live with festival hubs at Tobacco Factory and Ashton Gate Stadium. For the first year the festival will take over Greville Smyth Park as its main venue with music and live painting across the weekend.

This year one of the festival hubs will be right here at Tobacco Factory. We’ll have live painting, drawing battles, bands, DJs, street-food and loads of good vibes!
