Cape Town Buskers Festival will be returning to the V&A Waterfront from 5-8 October 2017 and the call has gone out for street performing talents to audition to be on the bill.

Forming part of the annual Cape Town Fringe Festival, the Buskers Festival will bring international and local performers, singers, dancers, clowns, mimes, illusionists and more into the popular V&A Waterfront across four stages and over 80 performances for crowd-funded theatre at its best.

The Buskers Festival is calling for freelance performers who have an act of approximately 45-minutes that can be performed at least twice a day to apply. In keeping with busking traditions worldwide, the act should be self-contained with quick set up and strike times.

The Buskers Festival will provide marketing and promotion for the event as well as all staging and logistical elements, providing a nominal stipend and permit to perform at the V&A Waterfront.

The Festival is a “hatting” event, meaning that Buskers will encourage their audience to give them tips – all of which they keep.

How performers can get involved:

  • EITHER come along to one of the audition days at the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre on 15, 17 or 19 August 2017, anytime between 12pm and 4pm, to give the panel a taste of what you can do.
  • OR, Buskers who can’t make those auditions can grab their phones and film a short video of their performance

Regardless of the method of audition, all entrants need to complete the application form at before 5pm on 21 August 2017

The Buskers Festival is a project of the Cape Town Fringe, National Arts Festival and V&A Waterfront.
