World Buskers Festival Has Online Preview

This summer’s World Buskers Festival in Christchurch, New Zealand is now previewed online for people keen to get the most from the entertainment on Christchurch’s streets during the 11 day event.


The official 2010 World Buskers Festival website has been launched (http://http://www.worldbuskersfestival.com) with details of all the performers attending the festival, as well as a schedule of when and where around Christchurch they will be performing.


Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker says the World Buskers Festival consistently tops the list of the city’s favourite events.


“Each year, the 10 day festival attracts 300,000 visitors to Christchurch, all keen to experience the daring and hilarious antics of our buskers. The Central City comes to a standstill during the street performances and evening events allow us to secure a seat right next to the action,” he says.


“With 44 acts, 450 live shows and 500 hours of world class entertainment this is a festival you’ve just got to experience,” says festival director Jodi Wright


“An exciting new music pitch has been added to the 2010 festival. Plus the circus, street and comedic talent we’ve assembled for this festival is truly world class. Check out the schedule so you don’t miss seeing any of them perform.”


In its 17th year the World Buskers Festival runs in Christchurch from 21 to 31 January 2010.
