Singapore Buskers' Festival 2004

Busking, the art of street performing, is street theatre unlike any other. Come catch the beauty of street theatre at the 8th Singapore Buskers’ Festival this year as it promises to be an entertainment bonanza showcasing acts of mayhem, madness, spontaneity and witty satire.

Live entertainment at its best, be prepared to be amazed as the Singapore Buskers’ Festival showcases a nine-day line-up that has something for everyone: jugglers, face painters, and never seen before acts performing non-stop, simultaneously at six venues.

Each year, the Singapore Buskers Festival stages one of the greatest celebrations of street performance, attracting audiences from around the world to sample the city's thrilling atmosphere.

The festivities offer a unique opportunity to experience the excitement of live performance by internationally renowned artists as well as the joy of discovering new and unfamiliar works.

This year, Singapore’s wildest street carnival will be launched alongside the Christmas Light-up on Orchard Road.

Marvel at the vast talent as passionate dancers, interstellar mimes, multi-talented jugglers, comedians, magicians, and musicians take to the streets of Orchard Road on 13th November in a colourful Buskers’ Parade to mark the launch of the festival. There is no form of theatre or art more diverse, more spontaneous, or more accessible.

The annual festival, now in its eighth year, has grown to become the largest street festival of its kind here in the Asia Pacific.

Last year, over 50 international and local performers, across 9 days, enchanted half a million people here in Singapore as spectators thronged the streets to catch the city’s wildest carnival celebration.

No two performances are ever identical – spontaneity and improvisation take precedence over perfection at the Buskers’ Festival. Witness the eclectic array of talent as the performers transform outdoor spaces and busy streets into a spectacular stage for total mayhem.

Watch out for exhilarating performances as charismatic buskers perform at Clarke Quay, Robertson Walk, Marina Square, Orchard Road, Singapore Changi Airport, MacRitchie & Bedok Reservoir and Singapore Expo.
