Midlands Busking Festival 2020


Are you an aspiring singer, dancer, musician, juggler, poet or street performer?

You may have what it takes to take part in the Midlands Busking Festival. Busking contestants will battle it out on Saturday August 15th 2020 and entertain the community.


Busking Competition


The term “busking” can be best described as a musical performance in a public space, often for voluntary donations. At Midlands Busking Festival, we like to showcase our Buskers, giving them the opportunity to play in front of the local Longford community and its visitors to the town for the competition, with the chance to win a series of prizes.


We are on the hunt for unique performers, with applications now open! If you think you have what it takes to help bring the town of Longford in Co. Longford to life. Apply Now!!
