Rise Festival is about to launch in Christchurch New Zealand and it looks like a cracker! Big Ups to Oi You who are running things! I’m SPEWING I haven’t organised a cheeky trip over for the weekend, ah well! For any in NZ make sure you get to this!
The festival features a stelar line up with the likes of Askew, Lister, ROA, Ian Strange (Kid Zoom), Thom Buchanan and works on display by Banksy (he won’t be there but some traveling canvases will) as well as some of the worlds best street artists work.
Of course, lots of big walls will be painted, as well as Ian Strange’s new show Final Act at Canterbury Museum. Thom Buchanan’s installation sounds like it will be interesting, a mix of film and art and experience. Read all about the festival and what to expect on their site.
