‘The Simpsons’ to Score Street Cred at U.K.’s Upfest

‘The Simpsons’ to Score Street Cred at U.K.’s Upfest
Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products has teamed with street art festival Upfest to fete the 10th anniversary of the event with “The Simpsons”-inspired activations.

This year's celebration will bring Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Marge, Homer and more to life through a variety of artist interpretations–including Bao, a Hong Kong-based freestyle artist; Soker, a wildstyle writer; and Nomad Clans, a global collective to create art works based on the long-running series.

“We’re incredibly pumped to be celebrating the iconic characters of ‘The Simpsons’–it’s a show truly loved by people of all ages. 2018 marks a significant milestone for us. Being our 10th anniversary we wanted to go big and given the global phenomenon surrounding ‘The Simpsons’ makes this the perfect collaboration," says Steve Hayles, founder, Upfest.

Upfest is an annual event that celebrates street art through a variety of installations, activations and music showcases. The event draws more than 400 artists painting at 50 venues across Bedminster and the Southville neighborhood of Bristol. It will take place July 28-30.
