We are proud to announce the 4th Annual Noosa Regional Competition for the Australian National Busking ChampionshipsTM will be held in Noosa on Saturday, 5th – Sunday, 6th June 2019. In addition to our very own talented local performers, we expect to attract top street musicians and entertainers from all over Australia who will be coming to Noosa to compete on the day!
This exciting event will see buskers performing along Noosa River’s Gympie Terrace throughout the day. There will be roaming Judges and “People’s Choice” voting with “Busker Votes”. Finalists will be chosen to perform in the Grand Final Concert on stage during “Noosa Come Together” in Lions Park, Noosaville on the morning of Sunday, 6th.
Local businesses are invited to host a “Busking Spot” on Saturday. These spots will be located as close as possible to you to provide entertainment for your customers and the opportunity to be a part of this exciting Noosa event. Buskers will rotate every half hour between spots to ensure fairness to both the busker and host venue.
We encourage businesses to “value add” by offering specials, hosting a BBQ or providing outside service and seating so you can make the most of the increased customers to your businesses. Outside seating may be as simple as a milk crate and a cushion – anything to encourage people to linger longer!
So join in and get your business noted on the Noosa Busking Map!
To be involved please register by Wednesday, 1st May. A fee of $200.00 will secure your booking as an “Official Busking Hot Spot”. Your money will go to Rotary Noosa Heads. It will be used to promote this event and your business and to help cover running costs, prizes and organisation of the day. All profits will be distributed to local disability charities, including the Sunshine Coast 121Care organisation.
