b-side festival


Great art with people at its heart.
9 days of an eclectic mix of visual art, text,sound, installation and live art.
1 amazing island.


b-side festival is an artist led multimedia arts festival bringing new art to unusual locations, held exclusively on the intriguing Isle of Portland. b-side creates conversations between artists, residents and producers, crafting new work that responds specifically to the island’s unique and endlessly evolving history, geology and character. 


We have been known to curate and programme work that can be found on footpaths, in living rooms, within prison walls, at bus stops, in churches and more traditionally, in galleries and theatres.  

Experience new work made especially for b-side festival 2016.
You can expect art, film & sound installations, underground goings on, a pop up cinema, fanatical tours, performance, artists talks, workshops and a intriguing bending of truths at The Other Tourist Information Centre plus much more.

If you have never visited Portland then September is the time to make that first trip. 
Come and discover Portland’s extraordinary landscape with b-side as your guide. 

Prices: Most events and exhibitions are free. See the full artist line up on the website.
