Upfest 2020! 

We’re back… and bigger than ever! Upfest – crafted with Posca returns in 2020 with an earlier date and a whole new vibe

This summer, Upfest will take over Greville Smyth Park from 30 May – 1 June for our first ever ‘green field’ festival

The boards and canvases previously found across a multitude of South Bristol venues will be brought together for a huge weekend-long celebration of street art in the spectacular park, the first time the space has been used for a festival, in addition to The Tobacco Factory, the original Upfest venue.

The huge walls and murals traditionally painted during the festival weekend, will be created in the fortnight leading up to the festival weekend; giving more people the chance to witness these spectacular creations come to life first-hand. The murals will be complete for viewing while over 250 artists paint live alongside music stages and food and drink experiences.

We need to raise £25,000 towards this year’s costs…so let’s make it happen people!

 

 

 

About this project

The ethos of our festival is inclusion, therefore keeping the festival as a free event has been our goal for the past ten years. Every year our team spend months gaining appropriate sponsors, traders and local businesses to support our independent festival, but with costs over £135,000 we're asking those that can afford it to once again help out as they so often have done and see Upfest continue for many years to come.

Our 2020 festival budget breaks down as follows:

Security, First Aid, Welfare & Cleaning 31%, Materials & Equipment 28%, Artist Materials & Costs 21%, Insurance & Licences  8%, Marketing 7%, Administration 2%, Other Costs 3%

 

 

 

The REWARDS! 

Not only will you be supporting an incredible event, but many of our artists have given up designs, artwork & clothing in order for you to be further rewarded for your generosity. Whether you pledge a fiver or £1,500, it all goes a long way!

 

 

The team

Upfest is made up of two staff members, four directors, twenty five year-round key volunteers and another sixty helping out over the festival period… these are some of the most dedicated and hard working people going and we couldn’t do any of this without them.

 

 

Thank You

Big UP to everyone that pulls together to make Upfest possible, from the artists who travel under their own steam from across the globe, to our sponsors who massively contribute to hosting our free festival, Colin Moody for the awesome video, and especially our ninja crew of volunteers, we love you all...
