A HUGE thank you to everyone at Green Man Festival for the warm welcome we received. We had a fantastic time!
There was so much interest in the work of the four artists on show in the stall that everyone completely ran out of businesscards! If we directed you here to the UKPA site instead, here’s a handy link to each of our individual sites:
We Three Club / Luke Drozd / Army of Cats / Telegramme
We had some many genuinely positive conversations about art and music, it would be impossible to remember everyone we spoke to, but needless to say, thanks to everyone who came and visited our stall, as well as the Green Man organisers for such a great festival.
We hope to see you again next year!
UKPA at GREEN MAN FESTIVAL

Mercury Rev - by Luke Drozd
This weekend the UKPA will be at Green Man festival in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. We have teamed up with the festival to showcase a whole host of beautiful OFFICIALLY screen-printed gig posters from some of the UK’s finest artists for bands and gigs around the world.
As part of this partnership with Green Man we are bringing a couple of official posters for the acts playing at the festival.
So if you are going to the festival - pop along to our tent - say hi - and come and check out some wonderful posters in all their real life papery goodness.
Tramlines Gig Poster Show
There’s a new gig poster show happening at Sheffields Tramlines Festival at the end of this month. It’s curated by Tom J Newell and Drew Millward and it looks set to be rad! Here’s some info from the Tramlines website:
Artists Drew Millward & Tom J Newell are curating and exhibiting a collection of Risograph prints alongside their hand-picked line up of Internationally renowned illustrators, designers and artists, including Dan Mumford, Kid Acne, Jonathan Edwards, TADO, Guy McKinley, Bob2, Mr Gauky, Tommy Davidson, and many more.
Each artist has designed a Limited Edition Risograph print for a selection of bands that they have chosen personally from the Tramlines line-up. The Tramlines Gig Poster Show will be exhibited in the Millennium Galleries over the festival weekend. Entry to the exhibition is free and the prints (printed by Manchester-based printers Mono) will be available to buy from the gallery for the duration of the festival, while stocks last.

The excellent prints just won’t stop-a-coming from Brighton based Petting Zoo Prints & Collectables. Case in point is this excellent print for The Waterboys. Lovely textures and imagery. We salute you Cap’n PZ!
