We love to encourage busking at the Nannup Music Festival. So many of our favourite acts have started their musical journey busking! For those who didn’t get selected or just didn’t feel ready to apply, perhaps busking is for you.

Buskers need to register at the Ticket Office and abide by our busking policies (such as no amplification, 20-minute sets) before setting up. Buskers are not eligible for tickets or payment. They can perform at our allocated Street Stage @The Depot, busking spots within festival site where ‘Buskers Welcome’ is marked, or through personal negotiation with shop fronts or similar throughout town.

If you have a go and love it, why not apply for next year’s Festival?
