Stanthorpe will again be hosting a regional competition for the Australian National Busking Championships™ in 2019. This event will be Stanthorpe’s fourth annual event and it will be all happening on Saturday 23rd March.

This ANBC Stanthorpe Busking Festival has proven to be a winner for Stanthorpe, bringing musicians and street entertainers from all over Australia. It’s always a fun-filled family day with a huge variety of free entertainment on display. Local businesses and supporters generously provide prize money for the buskers and the local economy is enhanced by an increase in visitor numbers.

In 2018, the Stanthorpe winners Haystack Mountain Hermits (open category) and Felicity Kircher (secondary age category) went on to take out the top awards at the ANBC National Grand Finals in Cooma NSW. ANBC Director Allan Spencer said “these Stanthorpe champions went up against the very best performers from six other ANBC regional finals from all around Australia. It was a credit to these wonderful musicians and a proud honour for Stanthorpe, because it was the Stanthorpe competition that gave them their chance at the nationals”.

The regional busking festivals are designed to not only celebrate and reward the best performers but also to encourage everyone, young and old. The Australian National Busking Championships™ is now in its eighth year and has provided a great stepping stone for performers wanting to get into the entertainment industry. The Stanthorpe committee for 2019 is excited about continuing as hosts and is providing friendly encouragement to people of all ages and abilities to have a go and share their music or street performances with others.  

The 2019 event will be a perfect mix of music for Stanthorpe with busking during the day and finishing in time for Sounds in the Vines at the Stanthorpe Showgrounds from 4pm.

Buskers interested in participating in the 2019 South East Queensland Busking Championships in Stanthorpe can contact president@appleandgrape.org or telephone 0400 750 351.
