Busking in Tamworth
The Toyota Country Music Busking Championships are back in 2014!
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!

In 2014, we’re encouraging buskers to contact business owners in Peel Street to secure a location. Then, complete the registration form and it’s as simple as that.
If this is your first time to Tamworth and you need some assistance to find a spot, don’t worry, just talk to our friendly Festival team and they will help you out - contact details are at the end of this page.
The Registration form will be available soon.
If you have a Youtube clip of yourself busking, please email the YouTube link to us and we’ll choose a few to add to this page to give our Festival fans an example of some of the great talent that will be on display in January. If you don’t have a clip, no problem, it’s not compulsory.
During the Festival in January, judges will be keeping a close eye on all the buskers to see who has what it takes to appear in the annual Toyota Country Music Festival Busking Championships Best of the Buskers Concert for the chance to win great prizes and be crowned as the champion busker for 2014!
There are a couple of changes to the way the Championships are being run in 2014 so please ensure you read all of the terms and conditions before sending the registration form to us.
We can’t wait to see in Tamworth in January!
