Your goal for this contest is to create a poster for one of those festivals. You can either pick an existing festival or make one up . Some elements to consider to put on your poster: name of the festival, date, place, who will perform,..
Everything in your poster can be imaginary, even the bands or singers. So, use your imagination and create a creative and unique festival poster.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!
