The Big Picture Fest
Newcastle 2022

30 September - 2 October 2022

The Big Picture Fest is returning to Newcastle with 8 new sites!

Our 3 day large-scale street art festival will bring together world class artists to showcase their work alongside exceptional local talent.

Spread across 20 prominent sites in the city, the festival will include a massive Opening Night party, exhibition, artist talks, workshops, graffiti jams, walking and cycling trails, and more.

Save the date so you can witness top artists live in action and watch Newcastle’s streets come to life.

No need to book tickets! Simply come and see artworks in the making as we celebrate our creative community bringing life and energy to Newcastle’s skyline and streetscapes.

Location: Newcastle, NSW (Mulubinba, land of the Awabakal and Worimi people).
