This year International Graffiti Festival Step in the Arena will have its 6th edition. What began in 2010 with a graffiti festival in the Berenkuil where young talent and established talent could meet each other, has grown in 6 years to a unique festival in Europe.
On 6 and 7 June more than 200 artists from the Netherlands and the rest of the world are going to make their appearance in the Eindhoven Arena, the Berenkuil. Last year there were more than 10,000 visitors, young and old, who have enjoyed the cozy, creative atmosphere that Step in the Arena entails. In this a special word of thanks to the municipality of Eindhoven, Eindhoven 365, Lumensgroep, 040 Projects, Montana, Boels, De Verfkampioen, Vincent Huibers, Decofiti, and Art Pure who made Step in the Arena 2015 possible.
