St Andrews Market is trialing a new process for Busking as follows:
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.
Volume MUST be at a level that allows stall holders and patrons to communicate at a regular conversation level. You must comply if asked to turn volume down.
Unplugged: Preference is for acoustic musicians as we are looking for background music only! Any amplification or electronic enhancement is limited.
Amplification / electronic enhancement is currently being trailed . Battery amplification only and must be kept at a minimal. You must turn down / off if requested due to interfering with the market.
Busking under Hall Veranda
Session times: 9am, 10am, 11am ,12pm & 1pm
**Session time includes any setting or packing up that may be required.
Booking sessions: The booking sheet for busking under the hall veranda is available from 7.00am.
Pre-Booking: Market committee pre-brooks only 1 session per market in advance and only via email. For availability or to make a booking email email@example.com.
Variety: Buskers may perform more than one session under the hall per market but not in back to back slots. Buskers can rotate around the market if sites are available between veranda sessions.
Hall area vacant: If area in front of the hall is vacant and you don’t have a booking as long as you have not busked in the slot previously its ok to put your name down and commence busking.
Busking within the market.
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)
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 all ready 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.
Compatibility: If you agree with the above then we would love you to come along and entertain us.
Harmony: Not following the above may prevent you from busking at the market.
Feedback or concerns: Need to be put in writing to the market committee.
