Default List of Europe

I know people tend to not be too loose-lipped about sharing job opportunities, but I'm going to ask anyway with the preface that I am a veritable freak-of-nature and chances are likely that we would never be competing for the same type of job.
I'm applying for my version of p.art this time around not comedy.

I'm working up a decent list of Canadian fests and putting that in order, but want to be in Europe this year as well and know very, very little about fests.

This is where I need serious help. It's so much bigger than starting with a google search. I'm getting somewhere with it, but very slowly.

If anyone wants to send me messages or post some names, I'd be ever-so-more than grateful and might even chalk a caricature of you in pavement some day as a thanks. ...MIGHT. ...maybe.

Well, at all the busking/street performing fests I've been to in europe I've never seen a pavement artist included.
I'll put together a list for you anyway if you like.
I think Peter is going to have the best info for you though.

I'm in the same situation, so far I've got a few, but if some one is willing to give a hand it would be really nice.

Now, take this list with a grain of salt. You'll notice I started it a couple years ago and the dates probably aren't all accurate... Most of them have links associated with them, but they didn't copy and paste over and I don't have time to add them all. Google. That's probably what I did to find them.
Like I said, I haven't sifted through all of these so I don't really know what's what.
But have at 'er...
(I haven't gotten anywhere yet. Life keeps getting in the way.)

I'm not sure I can manage doing any more with it. If anyone wants to grab those names and make a sensible list, gopher it. I think I owe some thanks for the first chunk of links to....... was it Gav? Someone gave me those. Years ago now. Can't remember. Probably Gav. It all just went in a pile.
