Busking

 

Busking in Tamworth

The  Toyota LandCruiser Country Music Busking Championships 2015  will be back for another successful year of busking.
 
It’s one of the most anticipated aspects of the Festival each year - up to 600 buskers performing on Tamworth’s “Boulevard of Dreams” in Peel Street.
 
Some of the buskers are here in the hope that they’ll be spotted for their talent and follow in the footsteps of some of country’s biggest stars. Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, Beccy Cole, and of course Keith Urban all started by busking on Peel Street.
 
Some buskers, however, are just here to experience all the fun and excitement of the Festival. Whatever your reason for busking, it’s time to register for one of the biggest busking events in the world!
