Busking in Stanthorpe – South East Qld Finals of the Australian National Busking Championships

The CBD streets of Stanthorpe come alive with dozens of buskers at this free event every year, when buskers gather to perform and compete in the South East Qld National Busking Championships. See you in Stanthorpe Saturday 26 February 2022 for busking in the streets all day from 9 am and 3 pm.

Then when the action is the streets is done, head to the Stanthorpe Civic Centre for winners’ concert indoors (entry by gold coin donation).

Come along for some fantastic entertainment, and if you’re fortunate enough to be blessed with talent, be sure to register in advance and perform on the day.

Spectators can purchase “Busking Tokens” for $1 each and give them to the Buskers they like the most. The busker with the most Busking Tokens wins the People’s Choice Award.

Winners of the Secondary and Open categories will automatically qualify to compete in the National Finals in Cooma NSW.

They’ve got a great track record! In our seven years of participating in ANBC, the Stanthorpe regional finals have produced 4 national winners, Mat Brooker, Felicity Kircher, Haystack Mountain Hermits and the Inadequates – now that’s a good achievement and a good reason to be at Busking at Stanthorpe!
