Submit for Street Show 2022
If you've played Street Show in the past or if you're new to Street Show, please fill out the information below. Personal information such as email address and phone number will be kept confidential.

Filling out this form does not guarantee a booking. We will reach out to let you know your submission has been received.

This year we are looking to expand our database of performers to include many more non-musical acts. If you know of other musicians who would benefit from this program please pass along the link to this form.

Street Show is a busking program on Nicollet Mall that amplifies the street performance culture of downtown Minneapolis, supports vibrant street activities on Nicollet (e.g. markets), and improves the experiences of downtown visitors, workers and residents. Performer selection is curated by folks at The Warming House.

Location: Nicollet Mall
We will provide more information on specific locations once you are confirmed to play.

Performance: Family friendly. Most of the performers that we book are musicians but this program is NOT limited to music, and we have performance poets, painters and spoken word artists as well. (Drums are allowed on Nicollet Mall.)

Signage & Sound System:
You will be responsible for picking up signage (the red Street Show wagon) - it is required that you use the signage. DID is also providing small battery-powered sound systems for performers! Using a sound system is not required but if you do choose to take the sound system out you are responsible for checking it out from the office and returning it right after your show. Using your own sound system is not permitted.

Solo performers = $50/hr
Duos = $80/hr
Trios = $90/hr
Plus you can collect tips and sell your merch!
Payments will be made by The Warming House.

These are typical time slots and more may be added throughout the season.

Street Show Artists Unite for Justice:
All tips will be matched by the Mpls DID as a donation to one of five social justice organizations (JXTA, YouthLink, Voices for Racial Justice, zAmya Theater Project, Kulture Klub Collaborative) that Street Show artists selected.

Thank you for your interest, time, and talent!
