Default Street Performances / Busking

Since i was young I have always had a fascination with street performers. I'm very fortunate to live in Dublin City Center where busking dates back hundreds of years. I always felt that Street Performers are not getting the publicity they need which is why I have decided to use my marketing skills to Promote these Performers. I will be posting videos of street performers in this thread. Please check back and comment regularly. The videos will be side by side with the most recent one being set to Autoplay. If you would like to contact any of the performers give me a shout.

I wish someone Dublin local would compile some sort of tribute to the dice man. He was legendary.

I thought that guy was really good.

I've just came back from the World Busking Festival in Christchurch NZ & I didn't see any better torch juggling.
Nice touch blowing out his torches while still juggling!

Hope he's getting good hats!

Ciao

Typical really, Street performers have a bad rap.
It is part of why I joined The Busking Project too. Good luck on ya to go out there and make people look as rad as they are!
