The event started in 2014 and has since continued to grow in leaps and bounds each year. Today, it’s one of the most anticipated events in the region and only continues to get better.

No matter what your age, you’re sure to have a great time at Buskers by the Lake. While busking is the heart and soul of the event, there are lots more you can enjoy: Afro-Brazilian drums, daring stunts, floating half-pipe, and so much more. They’ve hosted some big names in the past, including Tones and I, who then became the first artist in history with a #1 song on the ARIA Singles Chart for the cult favourite “Dance Monkey” for almost half a year.

From award-winning musicians to circus stunts, comedy, teen prodigies, and sword swallowing, “Buskers by the Lake” this year will see even more incredible entertainment, jaw-dropping tricks, daring world record attempts and more!

Do know that the festival doesn’t have any huge stadiums or bright lights: it’s a grassroots festival that seeks to showcase talented artists – no matter their ability. They have been known to bring together an eclectic group of talented artists in a crazy, fun festival environment. Aside from that, there will be delicious food for all kinds of cravings, tons of art in various mediums, and a bar.
