The ibug enters a new round. Again, this summer more than 120 artists join the festival for urban art in Chemnitz (Germany) and transform the remnants of a decayed needle and blanks factory called NAPLAFA into a synthesis of the arts by an extraordinary potpourri of murals and graffiti, illustrations and installations, performance and multimedia.
Creative folks from all over the world – from Russia to Mexico – announced themselves for the 13th edition of the festival. Besides familiar faces there will be promising newcomers.
