Bring The Paint

May 2024 marks the return of Leicester’s Bring The Paint street art festival, which will once again transform the streets with large scale pieces of public art between Monday 20 and Sunday 26 May. 

The fourth instalment of the award-winning festival which boasts the largest line-up of internationally acclaimed street artists in the UK will attract thousands of visitors to the city over the seven days to witness the artists’ progress as they paint fresh locations and is shaping up to be the most ambitious yet. The festival will feature a huge selection of international, national, and local artists creating over 30 murals across the city as well as a host of exhibitions, workshops, live music events, street art tours and many other family friendly activities. 

Since the first festival in 2017 Bring The Paint has drastically reinvented the visual landscape of the city; creating one of the largest free open air galleries in the world for all to enjoy and showcasing the all-round benefits of large scale public artwork.

This year world renowned artists from Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Portugal, The Netherlands, Brasil, Switzerland, France, and the UK will be continuing the transformation with headline artists including SOFLES, SMASH, TAPS & MOSES, SUPER A, NUNO VIEGAS, FLYING FORTRESS, KINOS, KID ACNE, 45rpm, YARD WARRIORS, ERWTJE, JO-BER and SMUG.
