Screenadelica gig poster art, curated by Horse

Screenadelica is a gig poster exhibition founded in 2010 at Liverpool Sound City by Horse Graphic Design Studio, celebrating the art of the screen-printed gig poster

In 2011, the festival has gone on to exhibit at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, SITE Gallery(Sheffield), Bestival on the Isle of Wight and Orlando Calling in Florida.

Playing host to both UK, Irish and international artists, Screenadelica embodies
a wide variety of styles promoting the bands the artists love, inspired by the music they hear. With digital downloads taking over the music scene, the desire still to own something physical makes the screenprinted poster all the more important, driving artists to create pieces for each show which encapsulate the music in their eyes. The resulting artworks create a trail of creativity and imagination through the medium of screenprint, which Screenadelica then takes around the world for festival-goers to feast their eyes upon.
