We love to encourage busking at the Nannup Music Festival!

For those who didn’t get selected or just didn’t feel ready to apply, perhaps busking is for you.

Buskers need to register at the Artists Check-in and abide by our busking policies before setting up. Buskers are not eligible for tickets or payment. If you have a go and love it, why not apply for next year’s Festival?




We are strong believers and supporters of busking and so 2018 saw the inaugural Nannup Music Festival Busking Competition.

For 2019 we have six entrants: Ayden, Tori-Rae, Nathan Coleman, Volatus, Dan Oltmans and Jon Stapleton, each in the running for incredible prizes. Winners will be selected from an industry pool of judges.

1st Prize:

Jon Stapleton
Invitation to perform at our 2020 Festival PLUS entry in the 2019 Nannup Emerging Artists Award

2nd prize:

Entry in the 2019 Nannup Emerging Artists Award

Busking Circuit

Buskers are a precious part of Festivals and we love supporting them however we can. Hidden treasures they are. For 2019, we have two local cafes on board and have programmed acts at each. Melo Velo will have performers from 2pm-6pm on Saturday and Sunday, and the Blackwood Café from 1:30pm-5:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Our Blackwood Stage in the Food Court will have a great mix of Buskers, Denmark TAFE performers and Bunbury’s Rock N Roll High…  And of course the wonderful impromptu buskers throughout the festival and town.
