30A is the backdrop for so many outstanding events throughout the year, but Digital Graffiti is the one I look forward to and it never disappoints. Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a one-of-a-kind projection art festival where artists use the latest digital technologies to project their original works onto the iconic white walls of Alys Beach.
The sun goes down, the lights come up as Digital Graffiti kicks off its 12thannual festival at Alys Beach on Friday evening. Featuring our 2019 projection art installations, food trucks, and vendors along the festival footprint, this opening night street party winds through Alys Beach all the way to Caliza Restaurant—where attendees will be greeted with music, à la carte food and drink options, and fun for the whole family. Tune into the official Digital Graffiti app for a self-guided Curator’s Tour from Brett Phares to learn more about these selected entries. This event is open to all ages.
Tickets are $50 for adults and $15 for children (ages 3-12) through April 30 and $60 for adults and $25 for children (ages 3-12) beginning May 1.
Illuminated + Saturday evening of Digital Graffiti is an all-inclusive food and drink experience, with stops along the festival’s path featuring samples by local and regional chefs, winemakers, distillers, and breweries. The evening culminates with desserts, spirits, and casual discussions of art around the pool at Caliza Restaurant, which will showcase additional artwork. This event is 21+.
Tickets are $150 through April 30 and $175 beginning May 1. Guests must be at least 21 to attend.
Featured in National Geographic’s “24 Unconventional Art Destinations Around the World“, this immersive art experience is sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,”. Underground artists around the globe have been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies for many years to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a festival geared towards bringing these artists together in one place to celebrate and showcase their unique talents in a stunning coastal community recently dubbed the third most beautiful small town by Architectural Digest.
Each year, the festival attracts digital artists, filmmakers, interactive designers, photographers, VJs, and fans of art, design, technology, and architecture. Thousands of dollars in cash prizes are awarded to artists, with digital submissions being received from as far away as Israel, Austria, Canada, Germany, London, India, France, Italy, and China.
