Our festival's top emerging talent face it off in the ultimate showdown of busking brilliance! 

This invite only event sees our top acts go guitar to banjo in a battle to take out the "Totally Talented" title.  Only those acts successful in becoming part of the BBTC17 line-up are considered.

In a huge coup for singer/songwriters, this year we have partnered with premier Australian event, Airlie Beach Festival of Music to amp up the already highly coveted "Battle of the Buskers" competition prize.

In addition to a secured place in the Bluesfest Busking comp, cash, recording, publicity and advertising packages, the 'Battle of the Buskers' winner will this year also walk away with an all expenses paid performance slot at Airlie Beach Festival of Music.

“The talent being discovered at Buskers by the Creek is phenomenal and we’re stoked to be onboard as a talent sponsor to provide further festival performance opportunities for artists," said Airlie Beach Festival director, Butto.
