POP UP LONDON -
Let's Do London
We partnered up with Battersea Arts Centre and the Mayor of London to curate and host pop up performances across a variety of London locations.
From Peruvian and Bollywood dancing on Trafalgar Square, to storytelling, acrobatics and magic at Battersea Power Station, to a hip hop festival at the Southbank Centre and Leake St tunnels to Ibizan mash ups and steel pans at King's Cross Station and Canary Wharf Roof Gardens.
We're thrilled that our ParkVibes season at Thorpe Park has been extended until the end of August.
Check out our amazing street dancers, musicians, street art, freestyle footballers, BMX stunts, roving acts and more across the Island like no other every day.
We created International Busking Day in 2015 as a hashtag campaign to help raise the profile of street performance and celebrate talent
Now in its 8th year street performers participate all over the world. International Busking Day 2022 takes place on Saturday 16th July.

INNOVATING WITH TECHNOLOGY
ACCEPT CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS
We partnered with iZettle in 2018 to create a new software patch to
pre-set contactless tipping amounts and keep the payment units awake.
This tech innovation was a world first and enabled passers by to quickly and easily
tip a busker without having to wait until the end of a song.
Contactless payments are more important than ever due to the global pandemic.
Click on the link below for all information on our exclusive Busk in London iZettle partnership and how it works for performers.
Once registered you will need to switch on the specially designed Repeat Payments app in the iZettle Go app to ensure a smooth busking experience. To learn how click here
We curate over 15,000 hours of live music and street performance on busking pitches across the capital each year
We have over 600 performers on our talent roster and work with private land owners and brands to create performance and earning opportunities for artists
