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?


Wishing you were playing at the 2019 Nannup Music Festival? Perhaps you can be!

We will again be holding a Busking Competition on the opening night of the festival (Friday 1st March).

This means, (if successful) you can perform this year and possibly win your way into our 2020 program. You could also get the chance to perform in our café gardens or get into the 2019 Nannup Emerging Artists Award. Or both! We won’t be setting up backline for the busking in the cafés but will have a small PA; so ideal for solo or duos.



– You should have no professional recordings

– You should be able to use your Award (recording) by the end of 2019.

There will be 10 entrants in the Nannup Emerging Artists Award performing 2 songs each. The Emerging Artists Award will have full backline.


There is no financial reward and no festival tickets but it’s a great way to be part of NMF 2019 and possibly 2020.
