Vibrance Festival

Bidencopes Lane will be transformed during the upcoming Vibrance Festival, taking place from 19 – 25 February.  

Bidencopes Lane, off Murray Street, has been known as a graffiti hotspot for some years. It’s been chosen as the site for the 2018 festival to create artworks in an effort to deter tagging and bring life to one of Hobart’s most prominent laneways.

During the festival over 20 talented local, interstate and international street artists will turn concrete city walls into large-scale works of art.

The weeklong event celebrates Tasmanian street art and culture, and will include food and drinks, a public paint wall, art and craft stalls and performances by local artists.

The festival is family friendly and free to enter on all days except the Friday and Saturday evenings, which are ticketed events. Tickets are $15 each night for Friday and Saturday nights, or $25 for a weekend pass.

Vibrance Festival is presented in partnership with the City of Hobart.
