Upfest 2024: All the live music acts at this year’s event and when to see them

Upfest Presents, the new 17-day event program from the team behind the annual street art festival Upfest, launches on Friday 17 May. In addition to the extensive program of live artists and workshops you can find throughout the 17 days, there are also several days of live music to enjoy during the festivities.

Taking place every Saturday during the event, live DJs and music will act as a backdrop for visitors to Southville’s Tobacco Factory, a hub for Upfest year after year. We have compiled a list of all acts and stage times for 2024 (all information correct at time of writing but subject to change).




On launch day, visitors will also be able to enjoy music from Cridge, Bungy and Oli T, as well as a collaboration between Paul Monsters and Bristol Beer Factory, live painting and tape art and Subway coloring sheets. The festival takes place in venues and locations across the BS3 area and will feature some of the city’s most loved street artists.
