Guide to the Urban Culture Festival: what to do at the largest street culture festival

On July 7 and 8, the Urban Culture Festival will be held in the Port Sevcable space in St. Petersburg. We tell you what to do there and what to see.

In 2016 and 2017, the festival was held on the territory of Museum of Street Art . This year, the organizers decided to stay in a new place.

Sevcable Port is open only during events, so the Urban Culture Festival is an excellent occasion to finally see what a new space is. Well-groomed promenade overlooking the Gulf of Finland - not all the advantages.

This year, the space of the Urban Culture Festival will be divided on 10 thematic blocks: the organizers want to show all the facets of urban culture. During these two days, you can see rap battles, exhibitions of young artists, music performances, sports competitions, exhibitions of vintage and rare shoes, new collections from popular street clothing brands, participate in workshops and master classes and much more.
