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.

This was Up Here 4.

Well that was fun. Let's do it all over again next summer.
