International Busking Day 2019
SATURDAY 20 JULY
You Are Invited to International Busking Day 2019
Supported by the Mayor of London, International Busking Day will see performers in cities across six continents unite with musicians in London for a celebration of busking and street performance.
On Saturday 20 July, cities from Sydney to Reykjavik and Tokyo to Rio will follow London’s lead and showcase their busking talent at celebrations to mark the third International Busking Day. Join a stellar line-up of international artists, as they take over Wembley Park for the day, filling the area with music, magic, comedy, physical theatre and dance.
We’ve upped the ante this year and have over 50 acts performing across four stages around Wembley Park. We even have an evening stage at Boxpark Wembley.
Artists and line up to be announced very soon.
See you at the festival!
Get out there and do your thing whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned pro. Upload a photo or video of your performance to social media on the day using #InternationalBuskingDay. The GLA Busk in London team will repost and share throughout the day.
Email GLA at email@example.com if you want to tell us where you plan to be. We’ll put you on the map and send you an International Busking Day T-shirt and stickers to get creative with.
And remember, if you really like a performer share the love on social using #wembleypark and #InternationalBuskingDay
