Why

What is Busking ?

Busking is a professional street art and Busker artist who performs it. Busking is as old as cities themselves and you will find street performers everywhere around the world - it can be a musician, artist, or perhaps a clown. It is then up to you if you will support the artist with throwing money to the hat, or just with applause or you can just walk around.

Why Pilsen Busking Fest, and what we want to change

We often hear that the city should be able to live its own life. Being not only a place with many important institutions, shops, bars and parks. Our daily life is accelerating, and many of us spend most of their social interactions on the Internet or just needed communication in their work. On the street we can see so small amount of smiling people.Public space you share with people, but simply, you're there alone. And we do not like it ! We want to take a good and diverse culture, which as a universal language capable of linking people and revive the city of Pilsen and return to the streets and parks, active life. We believe that Pilsen Busking Fest is the best way to convey our idea as many people and give them the opportunity to discover interesting projects about that they until now didn’t have any idea. We will be very pleased when local artists will be inspired by their more experienced colleagues from around the world and we can awaken the soul of our city and mabe infect others cities.

We want to see more smiles and life than survival stereotyp.

Main target of festival is to have fun, revive Pilsen streets,pulling out from everyday and gray stereotype, turbulence cities with positive vibrations, But even strong emotions that forces you to think.

 "For the artist, and even the most seasoned, there is perhaps a greater challenge than direct confrontation of their art with visitors on the street."

We had the opportunity to visit several Busker festivals and buskers zones in Europe. Concentration of artists from around the world, friendly atmosphere, outstanding artistic achievements, learning about new cultures,respect for each other were things what were absolutely stunning for us that much that, we decided to organize this kind of festival in the Czech Republic, in our hometown of Pilsen. We want to encourage year-round art in public space and help Pilsen to become popular and living place not just because of alcotourism.

When

Pilsen Busking Fest will take place from 20.9. - 23.9.2017

Where

We don't have exact map of the PBF 2017, but it will be very similar to the last year layout:

Náměstí Republiky

The third year we have moved the most exposed places in Pilsen, on its main square and you should look forward to a creative zone, two stages - covered / uncovered, beer cafe Francis, Bar Brewery Raven, busker bus from Tullamore D.E.W and much more.

Ulice Smetanova, Riegrova, Martinská a Americká

in these streets will be a main part of the program from 12:00 to 22:00.

Part of the program is predetermined, part will be spontaneous.

Smetanovy Sady, Kopeckého Sady, Šafaříkovy Sady, Křižíkovy Sady, Mlýnská strouha

Due to this notice change where we helped, these parks have become yearlong busker zones and during the festival here will completely randomly perform a number of artists,how, so how they will want, how it will suit them !

Furthermore, we are in touch with another clubs and other places where the Buskers can make their show. More information soon.

Entry

"Each visitor can voluntarily evaluate each of the performances, which will see with throwing money to the hat.

This eliminates the question of where they end up my money for admission. Pilsen Busking Fest admission is free!"

 

And during the festival we will have a hat on information and we will appreciate any support that will help the festival financially secure and push it further. Because its worth it !
