Urban Pressure, Montreal’s international graffiti festival, just ended its colourful 5-day run.

The annual art festival aims to promote different aspects of local, urban culture and engages its community to participate. And Ste. Catherine Street certainly participated.

From rooftop DJs to hip hop break dancers, pop-up shops and gallons of fresh paint, Urban Pressure’s 23rd edition was a radiant success.

The Quartier des Spectacle neighbourhood was spray painted with graffiti from acclaimed artists from around the world. The festival was so hip, it even got Montreal’s mayor dancing.

In case you didn’t get a chance to check out the fest, we’ve put together the best pictures and videos so you can relive the vibe all over again.
