Cape Town Buskers Festival

5 - 8 October 2017

A partnership between the National Arts Festival, Cape Town Fringe and V&A Waterfront

80 amazing performances – street performers, circus acts, buskers, musicians, artists, clowns, mimes and entertainers... over four days at Africa’s most visited cultural and historical hub.

International and local buskers are headed for the V&A Waterfront from 5 to 8 October as the second Cape Town Buskers Festival gets under way.
The Buskers Festival closes the Cape Town Fringe Festival – and the school holidays – with a programme of free-to-enter performances on four stages at the V&A Waterfront. Audiences pay for what they like, and can do so by putting money into the performers’ hats, a tradition called ‘hatting’.
Cape Town Buskers Festival CEO Tony Lankester says, ‘In many respects busking is the original crowdfunding. It’s also one of the oldest forms of theatre but, in South Africa, it’s not always accorded the same respect as other performance arts. We will be bringing out some international acts to add variety to the programme but our local street performers will certainly dominate and will hold their own with the crowds.’
