Edgy. Innovative. Artsy. Technological. And…it’s all going down in Florida.

Last year, we showcased a video in “Why Every Digital Graffiti Artist Needs To Know About Alys Beach Fest“, announcing Digital Graffiti’s uber cool festival happening on Alys Beach. This year, the competition coming back with another impressive cash prizes.

Every early summer, the typically relaxing Alys Beach is transformed into an interactive and avant-garde realm where the town is blanketed in vivid colors. Literally.

For three evenings, Alys Beach on Scenic Highway 30A in Northwest Florida’s South Walton county opens its doors, courtyards, and pedestrian paths to innovative artists who makeover the calm and repose resort town into a living work of art.

The world’s first projection art festival focuses on intersperse of art, design and technology displayed on top of architecture of Alys Beach as artistic expressions.
