Breathtaking Drone Footage Teases Derry Urban Arts Festival

Soaring promo clip shows Ebrington Square like never before as graffiti artists prepare to Release the Pressure

Over sixty urban and contemporary mural artists take to the streets of Derry this weekend (July 25 & 26) to tag the city in an explosion of colour dubbed 'Release the Pressure'.

Hosted by Derry and Aberdeen-based social enterprise UV Arts, the festival boasts an international line-up of graffiti specialists including Mark Bode, Bonzai, Vyal One and many more showcasing their work.

While the historic walls are suspected to be safe from any kind of vivid defacement, just about every other surface in the city could become a canvas as Ebrington and other sites welcome a weekend of the stimulating art form.

Derry-based aerial video specialists Cinematic Sky were on hand to capture the artists at Ebrington making their final preparations in beautiful, swooping drone footage that's become a signature of their clips. Watch the teaser below.

Release the Pressure Festival takes place at various sites across Derry on July 25 and 26. Register for free tickets here.
