Introduction to Buskincity

This is an introduction for professional street performers who want to create their own tours in cities signed up with BuskinCity.

This tutorial video gives you a general insight of how to use this website and what features and tools it offers you as a registered professional street performer.

 

How to use the booking system

CALENDAR

This tutorial video is going in-depth for how to use the Booking Calendar and using the World Map to set up a good structure for your own tour. We also look into the City Profile page and what good information you can get from every individual city page.

Easy to Register

BuskinCity is a pilot project to be developed over 3 years, between May 2016 and September 2018, in close collaboration with the municipalities and cities that have committed to developing a sustainable cross-over between culture and the private sector.

Our goal is to create a sort of “Covent Garden” in public spaces through out the world. Each city signed up with BuskinCity has committed to allocate one or more spaces in the city centre for street performing. It can be a pitch at a square or a walking street for pedestrians.

This is an introduction for professional street performers who want to create their own tours in cities connected to BuskinCity.

  • Register and set up your own profile on the Register page.
  • Start creating your own tour in the booking calendar
  • Choose your country and cities in the World Map
  • Chat with your colleagues in the chat forum

Additional tools to help you find and make it easier for you to perform in the cities:

  • You get permission to perform on advised pitches (See Cities).
  • Easy world map with geo tagged locations in Google maps for the pitches.
  • Pictures on each pitch, with a text description, with information such as what type of surface is available, suited for busker, big or small circle shows, etc.
  • Each city has their own colour chart to display peak season
  • You as a registered performer can rate and comment on the pitches
  • A phone no. and mail address to a city contact person in each of the cities.
 

Once you have registered and are approved, you will get access to book your dates in the calendar with your own unique username and password. Click here to register
