Since Upfest transformed the streets of Bedminster once again this summer, there have been heaps of new street art pieces to admire. But now, the legendary graffiti tour is coming south of the river for one day only, it’s free, and I know where you can get tickets!
Visitors to Bristol will have a chance to explore Bedminster’s graffiti scene as Upfest and WHERETHEWALL are doing a special one-off and FREE tour. It’s supported by the Bedminster Town Team and Upfest and will take place on Saturday 31st October at 2pm. Led by local graffiti godfather John Nation, this will be the only Bedminster tour of 2015 but will be followed up by three more tours starting from March 2016!
Bedminster is home to some of the city’s most diverse graffiti and to Europe’s largest street art festival, Upfest. This year’s festival saw over 35,000 visitors flocking to the streets of Bedminster to watch 300 talented urban artists at work. The festival hosted some of the most popular street artists from all over the world including home-grown festival favourites Inkie, Sepr, My Dog Sighs, Jody and Dale VN Marshall, Dutch duo Telmo Miel, Argentinean Martin Ron & L7M, Croatian artist LONAC and the first man to ever paint the Berlin Wall, Thierry Noir.
