Upfest, Europe’s largest street art and graffiti festival, landed with a mighty splash in Bedminster at the weekend.

Held between July 23-25, this year’s line up boasted 300 artists from 40 countries around the world. Favourites included: Gemma Compton, Bristol locals Jody Cheba and Cheo as well as abstract graffiti artist Mr June and Spanish duo Pichi & Avo. 

This year Mr Men partnered with the festival to celebrate its 45th anniversary and Bristol street artist Cheo even created a new character to celebrate. 

Here are our top spots looking back at the festival so far:
