For 4 days at the beginning of August buskers from around the world will perform in Barcelona in the Barceloneta neighborhood of the old city of Barcelona.
Busk´s festival particularly was a festival “in the hat.” This means that the musicians receive no box to participate in the festival, but the public is who gives the money directly to the musicians, according to its possibilities, tastes and preferences. During the shows are “pass the hat” and you can buy the CDs of the groups.
It aims to provide a space where musicians performed their shows as part of an international festival. The street musicians organize their events from a perspective different from the traditional (on stage) as to be located at street level, continuously and actively interacts with the audience, as the integrating your show.
