Marketed as "16 Days of music, art, comedy, spoken word, film, workshops, debates and performances", the Switch Fringe Festival is a UK-based event which aims to promote local artists and performers.

In a pretty awesome move, artist The Decibel Kid has created a map covering all of the venues which is based on The Legend of Zelda.

Ipswich has been digitised and turned into a fantasy village, complete with chickens and even a guest appearance by Link himself. You can view the full map by clicking the image above. If you're from Ipswich, you may recognise some of the locations, if not the inhabitants.

Beautifully done,
And a really unique way of rendering out the map for a Festival.
And what's more, both Gamers and non-Gamers alike will be able to appreciate it

That Witch should really be riding a scramble bike.

Once I was driving through Ipswich when I saw a group of glamour models in their underwear. On the photographer's command, they threw their hands in the air and said "Woo!" It's a shame that's not on the map.

Would be kinda cool to see this turn into an internet craze. Make your own town in Zelda.

Haha, brilliant. Live but a few miles away from Ipswich so it's nice to see the town get some love!

I'm like "YES, I'M FROM IPSWICH" but then I realized it's the one on the north side of the equator.
