Hundreds of buskers (street performers) will gather at The Forks this weekend for the Scotiabank Buskers Festival. On May 3 and 4, 2013 buskers from all around the city will audition for a 2013 Busk Pass.
What is a Busk Pass?
Street performers at The Forks must have a Busk Pass to perform at designated Busk Stops. There is an annual audition (Scotiabank Buskers Festival) that takes places to give performers the opportunity to purchase a Busk Pass. Only those who pass the audition can purchase a Busk Pass. This should be tons of fun to watch! Every Busker candidate will be given approximately 5 minutes to perform for the audience and the judges.
Regular Busk Stop Fees:
$10.00 Audition Fee (GST included) – payable before auditioning
$40.00 Annual License Fee (GST included)
$60.00 Annual License Fee (GST included) if selling preauthorized merchandise.
