The timetable and map contain daily schedules and the
performance site map - it's all you need to know about where
to be and when. Map out the shows or acts that you would like
to see each day and arrive at the performance / pitch site early
enough to claim a good viewing position. Remember this year you can
secure your seats to night shows online right up until show time.
If seats remain on the day they will be available from the Buskers
Bookings Booth, but only if there are some left.
Wear comfortable shoes, and layer up as Busker Park has its own
climate. A hat and plenty of sunscreen if you decide to show off a
bit of skin. Bring along a bit of dosh as these performers are
really worthy of your donations.
CASH IS KING
If you forget your cash, it's sweet as! There will be ATM's on
hand to ensure you keep rewarding our performers but why wait in a
queue when you could be checking out all our amazing performers?
Be aware that performers may ask you to participate in their
shows. Please feel free to decline for any reason and please use
caution and common sense at all times.
Car parking is available off Harper Ave. And this year it is
100% free! You can park up and make a day and night of it more so
than ever! Bike or walk if you can. Heaps of bike parking will be
available. We also have the Spark Bikes on site this year so make
sure you are all set up by heading to their website right here.
For BUSKER PARK festival-goers, you're welcome to bring food
into the park - picnic rugs and low chairs are also ok. We have a
selection of the cities best foodies onsite. Laughing burns a lot
of calories - so if you run out of food and drinks there is plenty
YOU'RE HOW OLD?
If you're going to a night show make sure you check any
restrictions - be sure to bring your ID if it is one of the few
restricted show. You must show age identification before coming
into the venue. This year most shows do not have restrictions but
do have adult content including nudity in a couple of them. We
still have R.O.A.R so use your common sense please. No matter what,
we aren't going to let an eight year old into a night show that
contains adult themes. Simple.
Don't bring alcohol to the park under any circumstances or we'll
just have to dis-invite you, and we don't like doing that! The
entire park area is licensed this year after 5pm so you can roam
between the stages with your beer or wine.
For those over 18 there will be festival bars. These are open
during the day and for attendees of shows at night. All venues have
a smaller bar inside of them.
We are responsible hosts, please, know your limits as any
intoxication will give us no choice but to eject you from Busker
Park. We will be doing bag checks at all venues this year so just
leave your own stuff at home OK!
Blue Star Taxis will be around if you need a ride home at night.
We're responsible hosts and want everyone to have a great time and
to get home safely. If you can't find a taxi you can reach them on
(03) 3799 799
We'll be Facebooking, Tweeting, Instagramming and even
Snapchatting. We love to see how you enjoy the festival - get
posting! Make sure to use the hashtags. #wbf2016
