UPFEST 2017 //  29th - 30th July // BRISTOL

Europe’s largest & free, street art & graffiti festival needs your help to make Upfest 2017 incredible!

There's only a few of us in the core team of Upfest and around one hundred volunteers managing an event which has grown exponentially since it started in 2008. Over 350 artists from around the globe support us by making their own way here and paint for free in front of thousands of visitors. We already have an incredible line-up of diverse and eclectic artists joining us, but it takes a huge amount of input (and money) to stage the growing event each year.

Donate and you could also receive accommodation courtesy of our festival partner Mercure Hotels at UPFEST 2017 click HERE for info.

The festival now attracts over 30,000 visitors across the weekend and we need your help to pay for the infrastructure to manage this, as well as helping fund additional artist materials and paint to make Upfest an even better experience for everyone. Our costs come in the form of scaffolding, cherry pickers and power access equipment, boards for the artists to paint, fencing, safety barriers to help crowd flow, staging, security, and of course, thousands of cans of spray paint.

Working with the venues of North Street, Bedminster Town Team and other festival supporters, we've managed to raise almost £50,000 towards putting on the free festival, however due to the popularity of the festival and increase in number of attending artists our production cost are such that we still need £20,000 from our festival fans to make this festival even more epic than previous years!

We are incredibly lucky to have a great team and an army of volunteers that give thousands of hours and take no fees for preparing, organising and marshalling the event each year.

None of the artists or musicians receive any fees for entertaining the crowds and many pay hundreds of pounds just to get to the festival, if you're coming to Upfest then please support this campaign so we can help with their materials.

We're exceedingly grateful to all the artists who've donated artwork, time and designs to this campaign, so all you lovely people can be rewarded for your generosity in making Upfest 2017 just incredible.
