b-side Festival

8 September 2022 - 11 September 2022

b-side is an internationally recognised and locally loved arts organisation that both embodies and enriches its place of origin – the Isle of Portland in Dorset.

This year, b-side Festival returns for their 2022 edition, launching 15 brand new artworks under the theme of ‘Common Lands’ which invites visitors to explore their relationship to the unique landscape of Portland.

Taking place across four days between September 8th-11th, Portland will host both local and international artists who will take festival-goers on an experimental tour around this distinctive part of the UK, exploring its history through their creative visions. From abseiling down Portland’s infamous cliffsides to a one-to-one poetry workshop, to diving into an augmented reality artwork of mythical mermaids and taking part in print and banner-making workshops, there’s something for all the family to enjoy.

The festival will also culminate in The Big Portland Parade, where attendees will be invited to a joint celebration of Portland. United under the theme of ‘Keep Portland Weird,’ attendees are encouraged to show off their most weird and wonderful outfits in a parade led by the local community, volunteers and b-side artists.

Please visit our website to see the full programme of events held across the four-day festival.
