What could be a better location to participate in the Australian National Busking Championship than Noosa?
Building on the successful launch of the regional championship in Noosa last year, 2018 promises to be a bigger all inclusive event with a wide range of prizes totalling more than $5,000. All profits will be distributed to the local disability charity 121Care.
The ANBC is a celebration of all styles of music because the Buskers who perform bring a huge variety of music to the event.
Busking heats will be held along Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, near the Noosa River foreshore on Saturday 10 June from 10:00am to 3:30pm. Musicians including solo performers, choirs, ensembles, junior and senior school groups and others will perform at selected sites along the Noosa River in 30·minute spots. The finals concert will be held on the stage at Lions Park the following morning on Sunday 10 June at 11:00am, where the judges and audience make their final decision on the winners. Roaming judges and people’s choice busker votes will be used to determine three finalists who will perform at the Noosa Come Together Festival. The Noosa Busking Championships are part of a nationwide cultural celebration of music and street performance with seven regional competitions around Australia in 2018. Buskers must pre-register.
Registration is open now, closing 2 June.
