Busker Festivals

~ 2016 ~


Quick Links

Busker Central presents the calendar of events featuring busker festivals around the world showcasing street performers in action.

Note: Multi-day festivals have the highest recommendation. Some busker festivals come and go, are not consecutive, and are for locals only. Scan websites carefully for a flag to translate into a familiar language. Single-day and fringe festivals are not listed.
