Buskers

Busker by the CathedralGo the Christchurch City Council – no they didn’t pay me to say that – but really – how lucky are we to have the World Buskers Festival in Christchurch. 14 years and still going strong. The energy generated has  Christchurch buzzing. Being a visual person I love live entertainment and the Buskers festival certainly offers plenty to choose from. The weather may be unpredictable but the quality of the busking is not.

Christchurch has come alive and yes the people are indeed dancing in the streets. The show I went to at the Art Gallery on Sunday had the crowd dancing and cheering with delight. I’m not really into Rap but if you get a chance check out Dub FX – very entertaining – Anyone who can prepare a meal in Rap and manage to hold my attention is OK in my world.

It feels so great to be a part of such a wonderful event. The two week programme offers something for everyone – Comedy, Music, Street Art, Living Statues, Mime – each bringing their own brand of energy.

Don’t miss the opportunity to expose yourself to something new and maybe a little bit different. It seems no matter who you talk to – everyone has seen something different. So if you have experienced feelings of delight and excitement please share with us – the more support we can give the buskers the better.
