UPFEST upstages the royal goon show.

June 2, 2012

Anyone else fed up with being told to gratefully celebrate having been a subject of our 60 year benevolent dictatorship can head on down to North St Bedminster.
From Dean Lane to the Tobacco factory will be the finest graffiti artists in Europe doing their stuff.
And we’re not talking baby scribble. These artists will be creating fantastic murals on the derelict Gala
cinema along with other pubs and open space all along north st.
All weekend. Think Banksy on steroids.
Just as the youth of the 1970’s stuck two punk fingers at the last jubilee so the new generation wields the 21st century equivalent in paint cans.
Never mind the jubilee bollocks, Upfest is here.

    Just got back from a brief wander up there – some incredible artwork going on, hope it’s not ruined by the rain
