Unfairground Fuji Rock 2018

When we found out there was no Glastonbury 2018 we decided to take the Unfairground on tour. Having presented some of the sideshows in the Palace of Wonder (the late night spot at Fuji Rock) in 2012, when Glastonbury last rested the land, It seemed only natural to take the whole motley crew off to Naeba for 2018’s 20th anniversary of Fuji rock !

 For our Japanese trip we recruited Unfairground favourites Ben Eine and Inkie on painting duties as well as Local legend Masagon and Myself. We packed Sam Haggerty’s sculptures into a shipping container or two and sent them off to Japan in May.


Pryratrix Circus Joined us to help entertain the crowds, with Born on road, Jagz Kooner and Jack from Children of acid providing the tunes for the weekend. In all a Uncrew of 50 headed off for the mountains of Naeba, taking a slice of site life to fields of Fuji rock.

And Dotty went freehand.
With the hottest weather on record, the Unfairground crew melted across the old Orange court. Thankfully The Typhoon that hit us Saturday night didn’t cause too much damage. We’d like to Thank Naeba and Yuzawa councils for inviting us, Smash go round for making it all happen and Bryan burton lewis for being so special. Thanks to all who came, threw some shapes and tagged us in those million photos that got taken! Thanks Guys it was real!



San Francisco update

Well if you can remember San Francisco, you haven’t been there, or so the saying should go. Had an amazing week in San Fran, it’s a hell of a town, Thanks to John, Kristen, Julio, Ben & Carrie and Megan.
Can’t really say why i was there, thought i’d be doing some stuff on the streets, having some meetings about projects to come…. but ended up painting large walls with Eine. However i did make a load of work thanks to the generous studio of EineSigns. It was a crazy week  and there’s little to say in words but apparently pictures speak louder so…

Thanks to megan at the Dog Patch Saloon who kept us watered, like good dogs, no one in San Francisco mixes a whiskey sour like you girl! You rock!

Eine’s dry

So it was with full fear we went to bergen to paint a wall with Eine and Steph. Not because they are scary but because we were attempting to paint a bloody big wall in the wettest part of the west coast. Famous for the rain, the town had experienced almost 2 months relentless rain pior to our trip. Ben arrived and the clouds parted….lucky basturd! I was straight (?) from Glastonbury and Ben and steph from Roskida, battle weary and soaked the sun made a decent change. Ben smashed the wall in 3 days. Contraversial calculate cash.
