Vibrant international Street Performers will be hitting the streets of Auckland for the thirteenth time over Auckland Anniversary Weekend 2013. Acrobats, jugglers, contortionists, hula hoop artists, comedians and many others will rendezvous in Auckland’s BIG little city to create the electrifying atmosphere that is the Auckland International Buskers Festival!

Zip on your best clapping hands, firm up your stomping boots and dive down the back of the couch for a handful of loose change. From the Viaduct to Vulcan Lane, 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 2013 International Buskers Festival in Auckland’s BIG little city.
Buskers Funky Facts:
What is a busker?
A busker is a street performer who entertains and delights others for voluntary donations.
What do Buskers do?
Well, what don’t they do? Buskers juggle, dance, eat fire, swallow swords, perform magic tricks…. The list is just too long to fit in here!
How much money should I give the Busker?
It is up to you how much you pay. 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. How much would you expect to pay for a ticket to a similar performance at the theatre or circus?
