If you are planning to do some “al fresco” performing during Bunkfest then read on as we have organised a number of venues that will welcome you rather than move you on.

We are happy to see any types of performances from mime to singing and dancing, poetry to juggling.



  • Don’t compete with other buskers. If someone is already performing, then, when they have finished that part of their act, get their attention and they will let you in AFTER the next part of their performance ( song or mime or what)
  • Everyone is allowed to do a minimum of two consecutive items before letting someone else in. If you are the one performing and want to do more than one more item then, as long as only one person is waiting, ask them if that would be ok when they approach you
  • Be polite. If you are using amplification then consider other people when setting the volume, and obviously don’t be a nuisance
  • Always acknowledge applause

Notes: If you are a singer and want to get a crowd then sing songs that people will know and recognise. If you are not Leonard Cohen then choose up beat music. Practise just a few tunes but play them at each venue.
