UPFEST, Europe’s largest free street art festival, is asking for help to reach its £20,000 crowdfunding target by May 13.

Upfest is growing each year – 400 artists from 70 countries are expected at the 10th anniversary festival in July. 

The funds will help pay for infrastructure to manage the tens of thousands of visitors, as well as artists’ materials. Upfest usually receives a grant from the Bedminster BID team – which, as revealed on pages 1 and 3, is under threat this year. 

In return for supporting Upfest, street art fans can receive rewards ranging from sticker packs, Posca paint pens, totes and t-shirts to original artworks and even a custom-made Heinz baked bean chair.
