UPFEST 2012 – a soggy affair


This would be an epic event on a hot, sunny weekend. Street food, lots of people, sound systems and graf artists from all over the place. However it was pretty damp last year and it was monsoon conditions this year. The sounds were pumping though and the artists were doing their best. The people also came in good numbers, however it is hard to hang about when its that wet.

Dan Wilson (who has done the new MBS graphics) was there again this year with the Soulful Gallery crew doing a great mural. They were struggling a bit with the weather but making solid progress. The photo does not do the work justice.

There was a lot going on and some interesting stuff however I think I was more impressed last year. Here are some bits that caught my eye.
