What could be a better location to participate in the Australian National Busking Championship [ANBC] than Noosa ? Building on the last two years successful regional championships, and in partnership with the Noosa Come Together Music Festival, 2019 promises to be a bigger and better all inclusive event with a wide range of prizes totalling more than $5,000. All profits will be distributed to the local charities. The ANBC is a celebration of all styles of music because the Buskers who perform bring a huge variety of music to the event. Pre-registered Buskers are assigned special locations (Busking Hot Spots) at various times along Gympie Terrace, Noosaville. Roaming judges and people’s choice busker votes will be used to select a number of Buskers to perform at the finals concert held at the stage in Lions Park Noosaville the following morning, where the judges and audience make their final decision on the winners.

Wow what a weekend ! - Despite the damp conditions on Saturday we had a record turnout both in the number of Buskers performing, the crowd and community support. We also raised a record (in excess of $5,000 - we're still counting) in donations that will go to local donation to disability charities.
And it wasn't just numbers - so much such talent ! Congratulations to the prizewinners and many thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, supporters and of course participants. A full list of prize winners can be found in the Busking section of this website, and photos in the Gallery section.
