Youth busking and street entertainment

Would you like to showcase your talents in the Subiaco Town Centre? Why not apply to do some busking!Busking-Poster-male-web.jpg
Busking involves providing entertainment in various forms such as dancing, singing, miming, puppetry, playing an instrument or reciting in a public place for voluntary donations. This could be a great way to develop your confidence and skills in performance, while earning yourself some extra cash. 

You can easily adapt your busking hours to be flexible and fit around your existing work or study commitments. There is no cost for an application to busk within the City of Subiaco, however all street entertainers must apply for a permit and make sure to remain within the guidelines. To apply, download a copy of the form below and return it to the city.

Find out the answers to frequently asked questions by downloading the busking and street entertainment fact sheet. If you have any questions or need assistance with your application, please contact the city on 9237 9222 or culture@subiaco.wa.gov.au
