The below is how busking will work once QR codes are no longer required:.

 

Bookings: We don’t take bookings for busking around the market so its first in best dressed for sites. On busy market days busking sites are limited.

Busking sites: Vacant stall sites or spots that do not obstruct stalls, market events, block pathways or roads maybe used for busking. (If unsure confirm with market committee re suitability)

Fee: A gold coin donation (for insurance purposes) to be placed in the honesty box located at the coffee stall next to the hall.  All donations will be donated annually to the local community on behalf of all buskers.

Unplugged: Preference is for acoustic musicians as we are looking for background music only!

Any amplification or electronic enhancement is limited and battery only amplification is permitted.

Volume MUST be at a level that allows stall holders and patrons to communicate at a regular conversation level.

**You must turn down / off if requested due to interfering with the market.

Share the love: Buskers must rotate every 30 minutes to a new site around the market.

**The rotation / new site means a new set of stall holders get to enjoy your music, not the same stalls who enjoyed your last set. You must move to a different area within the market.

Respect for those already busking: When sites are limited please show respect and wait for those part way through their allocated busking time to finish before commencing in a near by location.

Patrons and stall holders want to enjoy each buskers set and not have multiple buskers drowning each other out.
