Hundreds of buskers (street performers) will gather at The Forks Market on May 1 and 2, 2015 to compete for a coveted 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 (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
Interested in auditioning? Head to the Buskers Festival page for more information. You’ll need to fill out a audition booking form and return it to the 202 Office. You will then be notified by email or phone on your confirmation date & time. [THEFORKS]
