Organisers of this summer’s World Buskers Festival in Christchurch, New Zealand have launched an online preview for people keen to get the most from the entertainment on Christchurch’s streets during the 11 day event beginning January 21, 2010.
The official 2010 World Buskers Festival website has been launched 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 said.
Fesitval director, Jodi Wright added that, “with 44 acts, 450 live shows and 500 hours of world class entertainment this is a festival you’ve just got to experience.”
“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,” she said.
