Leicester’s International Street Art Festival


The award winning Bring the Paint International Street Art Festival was established in 2017.

This immersive event played host to an array of activities including live artworks, skateboarding, breakdancing, BMX, live music and exhibitions.

Artists from all over the world came together to showcase an impressive wealth of talent which has gone on to serve as inspiration for further artistic activities within the city of Leicester. A platform of creative collaboration on a monumental scale Bring the Paint delivered beyond expectations.

Bring The Paint will be returning to Leicester in 2024 with an enhanced programme of activities to showcase a diverse and thriving arts scene.

See international artists working across the city

The fourth instalment of the award-winning festival, which boasts the largest line-up of internationally acclaimed street artists in the UK, is shaping up to be the most ambitious yet.

The festival will feature a huge selection of international, national, and local artists creating over thirty large-scale public artworks across the city in a range of styles and themes.

Supporting the local street art community

We are really proud to support the local street art community in Leicester. Bring The Paint Festival features a number of local artists as well as providing bursaries to several local artists supporting their participation. Since its iteration, the festival has secured many new legal street art sites for local artists to develop their skills.
