Under Pressure Festival 2013

The Under Pressure festival brings together street artists with DJs, dance crews, B-boys and B-girls and skaters in one big interdisciplinary event. The official festival zone is Ste-Catherine and Boisbriand streets between St-Dominique and Ste-Elisabeth, including cross streets.

All the graffiti and other works displayed in the image gallery below are from the 2013 edition of the festival and do not exist anymore, as the walls are repainted in black every year to make space for new pieces. For subsequent editions see the following posts:
2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014 editions.

For more information on the festival’s programme, indoors exhibits, concerts and shows, etc, check out the Under Pressure webpage.

Le festival Under Pressure est un événement artistique multidisciplinaire réunissant ‘sous un même toit’ des artistes visuels, des DJs, des breakdancers, des skaters, etc. La zone officielle du festival couvre les rues Ste-Catherine et Boisbriand entre St-Dominique et Ste-Elisabeth, avec les rues transversales.

Les graffitis et autres oeuvres à l’affiche dans la galerie-photo ci-dessous sont de l’édition 2013 du festival. Ils n’existent plus parce que les murs sont repeints en noir à chaque année pour faire place à de nouvelles créations. Pour les éditions subséquentes, voir les articles suivants:
Éditions 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014.
