About Upfest

Upfest was originally dreamt up to bring 20 like minded artists together for a day of painting in Bristol. Today, the Upfest organisation hosts Europe's largest street art and graffiti festival, right here in our city. Since 2008 everything from smaller pieces to large scale murals have been painted throughout Bedminster as part of their annual Upfest festival, and each year thousands of visitors walk the streets here to see these masterpieces. The Upfest Gallery on North Street shares year round exhibitions from some of the 2000+ artists who've created pieces for the festival.

How to get there

What people are saying

Deirdre our host was very friendly and her enthusiasm and interest in street art shone through. She had chosen a range of works for us to view and was able to tell us about the artists, their backgrounds and their involvement in street art from the past. Very informative and interesting tour. Followed up with texts with suggestions for galleries and other tours which was much appreciated.
