What happens if it rains?

As all good entertainers know – the show must go on! Clearly, safety is paramount and the organizers will be monitoring conditions and in the event of extreme weather may have to change or even cancel the schedule.

What equipment can I bring – is power provided?

Within the space constraint and the time needed to set up and close down, please feel free to bring what you need.  We will strive to provide power where we can and juggle the busking slots to accommodate each performer’s need.  However, we cannot guarantee that power will be available in all locations (another reason that we rotate performances).

How long and how often can I perform?

Performances are typically 30 minute slots, 4 performances a day.  Buskers can however elect how many slots they are willing to perform and when they can perform. For fairness to the Buskers and our Sponsors, the Buskers will be required to follow a rotation schedule.

How much does it cost to participate?

$20 for each participant.  For Groups, there is a maximum fee of $50.

Is there an age limit?

No – please see above.

What is the cut-off date for registering to perform?

June 2nd is the final cut-off date, but of course, the planning and coordination of the event is made much easier if you can register earlier.

Are there any restrictions on the type of performance?

Please consider that

  • The championship is public and needs to be family-friendly.
  • Space is also limited at each of the busking spots to ~25 Sq. metres­­.
  • Power (e.g. for amplification) may not always be available.

Within these constraints, we welcome your creativity!   Please contact us if there are concerns or questions.

Can you participate in more than one regional competitions e.g. Noosa and Stanthorpe?

Absolutely, the more the merrier.

Can anyone participate in the Noosa Regional Busking Championship?

Yes, the competition is open to anyone. It is a family event structured with categories to promote music and entertainment across all ages.  For those wishing to participate who are under 16, we do require the consent of a parent or guardian.

The Busking spots along the river are typically accessible to accommodate performers who may have specific mobility needs.  Please contact us if there are concerns or questions
