UPFEST Takes on the Virtual World for 2020

Street art fans from around the world are virtually welcomed to the streets of South Bristol as UPFEST goes online.
Working in collaboration with Bristol-based augmented and virtual reality studio, ZubrVR and with the help of Arts Council England’s emergency response funding, the team at UPFEST has reconstructed Bedminster’s North Street with a TRON style feel, and designed an alternative way for users to experience the festival after the Covid-19 pandemic forced 2020’s edition to be cancelled.

Upfest returns 5 - 6 June 2021*

*Subject to licence, funding and making the festival co-vid secure the festival will return to BS3 on the 5 - 6 of June, 2021, with an extended program starting a few weeks before this date.

The crew at upfest are currently working through all scenarios to bring you an amazing, creative and safe festival

Upfest will take over Greville Smyth Park, for the event’s first ever ‘green field’ festival, in addition to The Tobacco Factory, the original Upfest venue. The boards and canvases previously found across a multitude of South Bristol venues will be brought together for a final weekend-long celebration of street art in the spectacular park.

The street work traditionally painted during the festival weekend, will be created in the fortnight leading up to the festival weekend; giving people the chance to witness these spectacular creations come to life.
