Info for Artists
Poland may not be about the biggest hats (compared to some other countries) but we really believe that you will enjoy your time with BuskerBus. Your show may be a very unique experience for the audience, especially to those in smaller cities.
BuskerBus Festival is for artists who love performing on the street. Artists who enjoy entertaining a huge crowds and also those who don’t mind building an audience when no one is waiting for them. We appreciate performers who enjoy what they do, respect the audience, and not afraid of the rain and can easily deal with any unforeseen obstacles. Please remember that this is a busking festivals, we don't provide any technical support and you must perform according to the schedule provided by the organiser.
Sharing is caring, hence we would like you to share your skills with other artists and the audience. Included in the program will be a special workshop pitch - “get inspired by a busker”. Our aim is to create an inspiring cultural atmosphere and you will also have some extra time for collaborations with other performers. We encourage all acts to cooperate and constantly improve their skills. We want the young performers to learn from the experienced artists. We love those special shows prepared ad hoc. In the evening at the festival clubs we run a BuskerBus Cabaret.
Who we would love to invite? We would like to create a diverse lineup, thus artists representing all artistic disciplines are welcome to apply. If you are one of those artists who despite playing a gig at night still goes to a jam in a local park in the afternoon, dances on the bus stop and juggles with fruit at your aunt’s dinner, we are sure that you would enjoy this festival.
Interested in applying? We don’t require CV full of festivals but we are looking for unique, polished and interesting shows. We would like to learn more about what you do and what your expectations are. We promote buskers as talented people and we want to make sure that you work hard, and provide the audience with a top notch and high level performance. This festival is both about the art and the people. If you would like to be considered please complete the application form online.
