When it comes to taking to the streets, spraying some paint around and stencilling up a storm, Banksy isn't the only artist worth celebrating. In fact, street art is thriving in Brisbane — so much so that there's now a returning festival dedicated to it.

That'd be the Brisbane Street Art Festival, which unleashes its fourth iteration around the city from Saturday, May 4 to Sunday, May 19. If you're wondering just what it involves, let us throw a few numbers and details your way: 46 large-scale murals will pop up around town, all from Australian and international artists, including 27 prominent female street artists. They'll take over 16 different spots, too. And, the two-week fest will also include music, several showcases, talks and workshops.

The full rundown includes a launch party in a riverside brewery, scribble slam sessions, live tunes, an aerosol masterclass, an exhibition about climate change and a street art cycling tour — plus art in places as varied as the Valley Mall, Howard Smith Wharves, West Village, the Wharf Street Tunnel, and many a street around the city, too. If that all sounds rad — and it really does — then you have no excuse not to take part.
