Exclamation Busking at festivals

I have been hearing on other boards about buskers working festivals and making BIG hats. I have a great street magic show and have talked to some festivals locally but keep getting told that they already have stage shows. Nice but I want to BUSK not do a stage show.

How do you get into busking at festivals? Rent a booth? Just do it (and piss off the vendors)? Need some advice.

Thanks
Peter

Default talk to organizers

I've had some success showing up on the day, finding the volunteer tent & asking to talk to one of the organizers of the festival. I explain to them who I am and what I do, and ask if I can set up somewhere & pass the hat. 9 times out of 10 they are very excited to actually have some family entertainment (as opposed to college bands and corn dogs). Sometimes they even ask me back!
