A few days ago, my friends at Ibug urban art festival called me to share the first details of this year’s edition. We will still spend a crazy week inside an abandoned factory in western Saxony but, unlike the last two years, I won’t be travelling to Chemnitz in 2019.
This is one of the most exciting moments of the summer!
I’ve just received a bunch of photos of the abandoned factory where IBUG Festival 2018 will take place.
It’s a former needle and blanket factory called NAPLAFA, located in Chemnitz (West-Saxony).
After eight long weeks of sunshine, the infamous English summer has arrived in Bristol. It happened on the opening weekend of the 10th edition of Upfest, the largest street art and graffiti festival in Europe. Hundreds of street artists and thousands of street art hunters gathered in Bristol hoping to stay dry, although the atmosphere of this world famous Bristol street art festival is so chilled and ‘bristolian’ that, in the end, we didn’t mind the water.
My time at IBUG festival was among the most exciting weeks of 2017.
The format of this urban art festival held every year in Saxony (Germany) is simple yet one of a kind: take a brownfield, invite 100+ artists and bring along a lot of paint.

Twenty years ago, a group of students opened a film club inside a former print shop in Monti, transforming the snobbish scene of Rome’s independent cinemas for good.
Their art-house cinema was punk –unlike any other independent cinema in Rome- and offered a wide range of cultural experiences besides the screenings.
