Street Life Festival 2017
10 years Street Life Festival, by Gifts and Gadgets and The Copy Shop, for one more year brings the city centre of Limassol back to life!!
On Saturday 6th of May, more than 20.000 visitors will fill the popular streets of Saripolou and Athinon, in the old town of Limassol. Building walls, sidewalks and abandoned houses will become the canvas and the inspiration for many street artists, from all around the world, that want to express their creativity. Impressive and colourful graffiti art will make the streets stand out of the crowd, giving the streets a more contemporary and urban character. And the reason for all these? Street Life Festival, organised for 10 consecutive year by Gifts and Gadgets and The Copy Shop.
Apart from the amazing graffiti drawings, many other activities will draw the attention of the public making their day as memorable as possible: incredible choreographies, cool stunts with skateboards, jugglers and street performers. Visitors can also experience the street market consisting of over 50 different stalls with handmade jewellery, handcrafts, games, dog accessories, furniture and other.
All proceeds from the rent of the stalls go to Theotokos Foundation which also participates in the festival.
Amongst around 30 street art crews, visitors can meet international guest artists. Some of the local crews participating are Edmon 1419, Opsis, Rate, Paparazzi, Angel, Rock The Dog and OLAK.
The organizational part of the graffiti/street art, setup and design is a collaboration with 2c Design Box.
Throughout the day visitors can enjoy uplifting and dance beats from djs and local bands.
Undoubtedly, this day will be another amazing Street Life experience, full of joyful and creative moments!
Street Life Festival is being organised once a year ever since 2007 and aims to bring a funky and alternative twist in the city of Limassol, to inspire expression, to bring people together and to offer an urban perspective that resemble other European cities. Now, Street Life Festival is considered the biggest annual festival organised in the old town of Limassol with thousands of people looking forward to it every year.
We urge the visitors to approach the city centre from the seafront road. There are various car parks by the old port and on the seafront promenade. From there the festival venue is only 150 metres towards the city. We recommend that you grab this chance to use your bicycles, skates, roller blades and explore the city centre of Limassol.
See you in the streets!!
