Buskers to shine in Port
ARE you a busker who would love to perform at this year’s Port Fairy Street Fair?
Organisers are now looking for buskers to enter this year’s competition.
To be held across the March long weekend during the Port Fairy Folk Festival, the competition is a unique opportunity to perform on the street among thousands of music fans.
Presented in collaboration with the Folk Festival Committee, the Street Fair has become a much-loved element of the Labour Day long weekend, with music, kids entertainment, food, stalls and more creating a lively atmosphere.
Mayor Ian Smith said crowds love the variety of musical styles and performances buskers bring.
“Whether you’re a solo artist, a dynamic duo or a full band, this is your chance to shine,” he said.
“Each participating busker can be rated by the crowd they draw.
“Up for grabs is a pair of tickets to the 2025 Folk Festival, some serious bragging rights, and a great addition to their musical CV.”
Buskers can apply at www.moyne.vic.gov.au/StreetBusking with applications closing on February 16.
