Make Music Day - Battle of the Buskers

Next date: Saturday, 18 September 2021 | 11:00 PM to Thursday, 30 September 2021 | 11:59 PM


The streets of Wangaratta are going to be filled with the sounds of live music as buskers hit the streets for their chance to win $500 worth of prizes.

Originally planned to host the event as part of the International Make Music Day, the event will run this Spring! 

So, in the meantime, dust of your guitars, start singing in the shower and get practicing! We are after brave individuals, duos and trios to join the competition. As much as we are hoping to find come amazing talent, there is also room for those who want to perform for the adventure of a new experience. 

If you would like to register your interest in performing, you can apply here.


Cafe PreView, Bertsy & Co, Paulies Corner, Intermezzo and No 49 Expresso Bar will be hosting each busking location. Every 30 minutes a new act will perform. 


You can vote for your favorite acts online. A link will be up on this webpage over the event weekend.
