Calling all street performers, circus acts, buskers, musicians, artists, clowns, mimes and entertainers….the Cape Town Buskers Festival needs you! To be held at the V&A Waterfront from 5 to 8 October, as part of the 2017 Cape Town Fringe, the Buskers Festival will feature four stages and a total of 80 performances over the weekend.

So if…

  • You’re a freelance performer with a killer, family-friendly act and the ability to whip a crowd into a frenzy
  • You have an act of 45-minutes that you can perform at least twice a day
  • Your act is relatively self-contained and able to set up and strike quickly

… then you’re what we’re looking for!

We provide…

  • Marketing and promotion
  • Staging (basic tech, lighting and sound) and support
  • Crowd control and security
  • Licences, insurance and permits to perform in public
  • A nominal stipend to cover your transport costs and meals.

Your job is to perform – and to get your ‘hat’ filled with cash from the passing crowd… 100% of what you raise, you keep.

How to be part

  • Come along to one of the audition days at the V&A Waterfront Amphitheatre on 15, 17 or 19 August 2017, anytime between 12pm and 4pm, and give us a taste of what you can do
  • If you can’t make auditions, grab your phone and film a short video of you doing your thing.

Whichever of the above two methods you use, you need to complete the application form at www.capetownfringe.co.za/buskers before 5pm on 21 August 2017
