International Busking Day in Wembley Park
International Busking Day is Saturday 21 July 2018. Now on its fourth year, the Mayor of London’s supported festival will relocate from Trafalgar Square into its new home, Wembley Park. As part of the festival, the GLA’s Busk in London team will be running a programme of festival events from midday – 8 p.m.
Performers across 6 continents will be expected to take part in this year’s International Busking Day – from Sydney to Reykjavik, Tokyo to Rio. Wembley Park will be filled with music, magic, comedy, physical theatre, living statues and dance.
So, come down and enjoy a free day of music, street food and performances as international artists take over Wembley Park for the day. Summer’s here and the time is right to get ready and busk a move.
– Get out there and do your thing whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned pro. Upload a photo or video of your performance to social media on the day using #InternationalBuskingDay.
– The GLA Busk in London team will repost and share throughout the day.
– Support local talent. Let us know about any buskers you’ve seen on your travels. If they made your day brighter, show your support by tipping them.
– Email GLA at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to tell us where you plan to be. We’ll put you on the map and send you an International Busking Day T-shirt and stickers to get creative with.
And remember if you really like a a performer share the love on social using #wembleypark #summerofplay and #internationalBuskingDay
