If you follow this blog you may know that “Industriebrachenumgestaltung”, short: IBUG, is my favorite urban art festival ever. As a mediapartner of the event, I spent quite a lot of time over the last two summers inside two different abandoned factory in Saxony (East Germany).
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.
