Busking information

Registration system

Buskers have always been one of the cool things about Winter Magic – they add life to the street and help fill it with sound and colour. We want busking at Winter Magic to be a positive experience for everyone so we have taken a lead from Tamworth Country Music Festival and adopted a new policy:

  • Buskers MUST register at one of our two Winter Magic information stalls on Katoomba Street ON THE DAY and provide their name and mobile phone number
  • At the time of registration buskers will be allocated a blackboard slot (on a first-come, first-served basis)
  • The registration fee is $20 for buskers over the age of 16 years (under 16s can busk for free but must still register)
  • Buskers will receive a lanyard to display as a pass to work their slot on the blackboard stages
  • Buskers get to keep all their earnings from their slot
  • Should any of our scheduled acts be unable to play, we will invite registered buskers to fill in
  • Registered buskers who fill in for absent performers will receive payment from the Winter Magic Festival

Why have we introduced this policy?

  • We want many buskers to have the opportunity to earn and shine (busking at Winter Magic is lucrative)
  • Registering means we can contact buskers if we need to backfill a stage spot for any reason on the day
  • We want to make sure buskers don't interfere with each other or with other performers

We really hope buskers bring their best to Winter Magic, and that this registration system helps the Winter Magic Committee to pluck talent from the crowd, if spots on the stages become available. 

NB: THERE IS NO SYSTEM FOR BUSKERS TO REGISTER OR PAY BEFORE THE EVENT SO DO NOT EMAIL OR SEND FACEBOOK MESSAGES TO THE WINTER MAGIC COMMITTEE. QUESTIONS ABOUT BUSKING WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.
