With $1000 cash as first prize up for grabs, plus significant other cash and performance opportunities, mentoring and recording packages, Rosebud’s second Busking Festival will attract a large number of talented performers and will be a treat for spectators!
Taking place on the morning of Saturday 14th November from 10am, the 35 buskers including soloists, bands, choirs, actors, artists and clowns, will be located sites on the footpath across the town centre and around the Rosebud Plaza. They will be judged on how well they entertain the crowd, the originality of their act and the quality of their performance.
The competition has a category for the under 14’s to encourage all the amazing local talent to participate. In the middle of town, between Rosebud Parade and Ninth Avenue, there will be roving acts, dance and art workshops.
The four judges all have backgrounds in the arts and will be seeking out the outstanding emerging and established talent. Alvis Parkinson is a Melbourne singer songwriter who also teaches at Collarts in South Melbourne. Bryon Georgouras is involved in artist management, music marketing and music journalism. Local singer Ryan Luckhurst spearheads the Band Wagon agency and is a respected musician with years of busking experience. The team is completed by Mornington Peninsula Councils arts development officer Jo Ridgeway, adding her wide knowledge of the performing arts to the judging mix.
Join the fun from 10am to 1pm on Saturday November 14. Enjoy the atmosphere, encourage the performers, throw a coin and add your support to the Rosebud busking fest. Brought to you with generous sponsorship of Rosebud Chamber of Commerce and Mornington Peninsula Shire.
