Between 8am and 2pm buskers will be given between 2-4 performance slots at designated locations in the CBD of Toowoomba. Each set will be 25min long with a 5 minute strike/set up window. This preliminary round will be old-school busking; just you, your instruments and the city around you.
During the preliminary round, judges will be watching the performances and picking the top buskers for the finals. These finals will take place on the main stage of the Streets and Lanes Festival where finalists will get a shot to sway the judges and take home the grand prize.
But this busking festival isn’t just about finding the best busker. During the event, there will also be a people’s choice award as voted by friends, family, and the random people that dig your music as they walk by. So even if you don’t make it to the finals, there is a good chance you could still walk away with some great prizes!
