DEFINITION OF BUSKER:  Someone who entertains in a public place for donations!

Buskers by the Creek celebrates the old fashioned art of busking and our talent are only paid by your tips and purchase of their merchandise. 

This year we've got talent travelling from around the globe to entertain you. If you like what you see or hear, don't forget to give generously and grab a cd or ten to add to your collection!  Every dollar counts towards their ride on the road to success!   

Our busking line-up below is updated weekly, so stay tuned for more!  The 'Buskers Times' will be available here soon and a take home souvenir copy can be snagged at the festival - it includes the chance to WIN the Airlie Beach Festival of Music Treasure!
