Urban Art & Music Festival / Sudbury, Ontario

August 16-18, 2019 in weird and wonderful Sudbury, Ontario


Up Here is an independent urban art & music festival founded in 2015.

Every summer, Up Here brings together dozens of muralists, musicians and installation artists to transform downtown Sudbury into an urban art gallery.

Up Here is a project of We Live Up Here, a volunteer run non-profit organisation founded in 2012 around the simple idea that art can bring people together and can playfully reshape our community.
