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 organization founded in 2012 around the simple idea that art can bring people together and can playfully reshape our community.

Artist Submissions

Artist submissions for 2020 will open in December 2019.

Building a festival lineup is like solving a Rubik's Cube: it's complex and it's got a lot of moving parts.

All submissions are evaluated by the Up Here Artistic Committee based on artistic merit, timing of latest releases, pertinence of the project with this year's theme and pairing with other artists in the lineup. Only successful applicants will be notified.
