Yardworks Festival

Event by SWG3 ArtsSWG3 and Yardworks

5 – 7 May, 2023

SWG3, 100 Eastvale Pl, Glasgow G3 8QG

Yardworks Festival 2023 is back for another incredible weekend of colour, creativity, collaboration, skating, painting, workshops, street food, bars, music and everything that happens in between.

From 5-7 May, the concrete playground that is the Galvanizers Yard will once again be transformed into a vibrant, riotous open-air art gallery as some of the biggest urban artists from across the globe, as well as the local talent bursting out of our city, will pile in to create murals in real-time.

As always, families (and dogs) are very welcome, and there’ll be tons on to occupy all ages, from Mia McGregor’s interactive Cubes to painting workshops, face-painting, baby-and-toddler-disco Mini Manoeuvres and even a half-pipe.
This year there’s something extra special lined up with the launching of the Yardworks Studio. On Saturday 6 and Sunday 7, you’ll get a chance to have a swatch at the UK’s first dedicated studio for urban art — a purpose-built hub that will provide a home for hundreds of artists, youth organisations and community projects to create work in.

With an artist list so far including the likes of Jay Kaes, .EPOD, Morf, Aches and KMG, keep your eyes peeled for many more announcements coming over the next two months.

This year’s artists so far (A-Z):

ACHES, AROE, Box Vincent, Danny Rumbl, Drik The Villain, Easi, EKTO, .EPOD, Etnik, INSANE51, Jay Kaes, KMG, Mak One, Marcamix031, Molly Hankinson, Morf, Philaico Mei, POSEA, Rask, SAIR MAX, Saturno, SledOne, Smug, Ster, TONES, VOID ONE, VOYDER, WOSKERSKI
