World Class Talent will be hitting the streets of Auckland, New Zealand for the Eighteenth time over Auckland Anniversary Weekend 2018.


Acrobats, magicians, comedies, unicycle champions and more will rendezvous around Auckland’s CBD to create the electrifying atmosphere that is the Auckland International Buskers Festival!



The festival runs from Friday 26 January to Monday 29 January 2018. 



In 2018 there are 6 different sites. These include:

  1. Queens Wharf
  2. Princes Wharf
  3. Eastern Viaduct
  4. Te Wero Island
  6. Market Square, Viaduct Harbour (Night Shows only)


An Extra Bit of Info…

Buskers actually earn their living by ‘passing the hat’ so if you enjoy their performance let them know when the hat is passed to you. It is up to you to decide how much you will give them. How much would you expect to pay for a ticket to a similar performance at the theatre or circus?

So empty your piggy bank, pockets and swear jar for a handful of loose change. From SKYCITY down to the Viaduct, the streets will be transformed into a playground for some of the world’s most talented street performers. Come experience a world of madness and mayhem at the 2018 International Buskers Festival in Auckland’s CBD.
