23 Aug 2020 BUMP Festival: Week Three & Upcoming Events
We can’t believe we are three weeks in and only one week remains for the Festival! August has been a busy but blissful blur of BUMPing! We love seeing you all enjoying sunny mural tours, and tagging @yycbump in all your mural adventures. It’s been a pleasure getting to know fellow Calgarians at our events and seeing the support of our community.
On the weekends, Calgarians have been BUMPing along to some tunes and getting our new 2020 program at the physically distanced events. We have a whole list of events for our last week of the Festival and we can’t wait to see you there! More information about the events can be found below.
Here are some highlights from this past week:
Music in the Park: Beats by DJs Ms. Clarity and Helen were enjoyed by all in the Beltline’s most beautiful park. We were happy to meet some Calgarians, speak with them about the BUMP Festival and hand out our colourful programs. The flowers were in full bloom and the sun was shining to make for a perfect day at the park!
BUMP UP!: Doras made impressive progress on his mural accompanied by danceable tunes by DJs Samsung and Dr. Space. Lots of locals stopped by via bike, scooter & by foot to check out the music, see Doras’ techniques, and to find out more about BUMP Festivites.
A few more murals have been completed and many more murals are in-progress since our last weekly update. The updated Mural Locations Map is located on our Festival Page
