The first Saturday in October, October 1, 2022, is reserved for the ninth edition of the xSTatic festival. Graffiti art, skateboarding (skate park Kolo), allstyle battles (Underground Society association), street basketball (Unisport ST), stand-up comedy (SplickaScena), a live radio program (KLFM), and an evening concert are the backbone of this year's xSTatic. It is the only Split festival that promotes all positive aspects of urban culture. Gripe and Koteks are becoming the urban epicenter this year as well.
Street art and graffiti artists will bring a touch of color to city surfaces with their original works. The ninth edition of the xSTatic festival will also be the most numerous for artists - it will host 42 domestic and 20 international graffiti writers!
This year we have 60+ graffiti and street art artists from all over the world: USA, Brazil, Colombia, Malaysia, Switzerland, Germany, Slovenia, BiH, and, of course, Croatia, with an emphasis on the Split graffiti scene. Also participating is Tea Jurišić, a well-known street art artist who works with brands and clients like Pipi.
Graffiti writers start drawing in the morning, thus opening the all-day program of the festival, which continues with competitions in the afternoon. SK Kolo organizes a skate competition in which competitors will measure their strengths and skills "one on one" modeled on the Game of skate. The competition in street basketball follows, and after the basketball, the dance competition "Allstyle battles 1vs1" starts. The competitive part of the program ends with the announcement of winners in all categories.
In addition to the competition, SK Kolo organizes workshops for children, the guys from Mankaze (barber shop) are in charge of the barber corner, and the gastro corner will have special festival craft beers. The festival continues with entertainment in the evening program. The people of Split and their guests will be entertained by the stand-up comedians of SplickaScena. The Split hip-hop musicians Hram, Frenkie, Tibor, Noti Limun, and Edo Maajka will perform.
The all-day xSTatic program will be accompanied by a musical backdrop from radio KLFM, which will move its studio to Gripe, from where it will report from the field, broadcast shows, and provide an all-day electric musical backdrop to the festival.
Admission to the entire festival program is free, and everyone interested is welcome to attend!
