“The festival aims to introduce the public to street art in a positive way and to make daily life more pleasant for people living in the city. Apart from musical performances, theatre ensembles and acrobats will also perform in the streets of Prague,” the event organisers said about the programme.
Busking does not include just music acts, but is any street performance, from music to magic, theatre to dance. Passers-by usually toss a voluntary contribution into their favourite performer’s hat. Even though the artists at the festival do not charge for the public to watch and listen to their performances, they will surely appreciate your support!
5 stages for music acts, 1 stage for theatre and over 40 busker points will be created in Republic Square (‘náměstí Republiky’), Kampa, Jungmannovo Square, Můstek and other locations. In fact, you can simply walk all the way through Prague from Dejvice to Jungmannovo Square while enjoying free programmes and deciding which buskers to support by throwing change into their hats.
