Banksy’s Festival, also known as Destroy Capitalism, is a three-colour screen print from 2006 released as a part of his Barely Legal exhibition as a signed edition of 150.
Festival (Destroy Capitalism) depicts a group of people rendered in Banksy’s iconic black and white stencil-style at a music festival queuing up to buy t-shirts and merchandise. The words “Destroy Capitalism” can be read on a bright red T-shirt that is the only colourful, central element on the image. The artwork was made for Banksy’s iconic American exhibition, Barely Legal which took place in a warehouse in LA in 2006. Festival screen prints were part of Banksy’s Barely Legal Print Set, a set of six prints which includes the works Applause, Grannies, Morons, Trolleys and Sale Ends. The characters in the queue are dressed according to different stereotypes (goths, hippies etc. ), which suggests that it’s a satirical ironic comment on how independent and anti-globalisation events such as underground music festivals for example, have now become hypocritical versions of themselves and are fully integrated into the capitalist system, contradicting the usual motto of this audience.
