DIP A TOE IN COOL WA­TERS OF BUSK­ING

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

GET ready to be amazed as the fifth an­nual Buskers by the Creek be­gins in Cur­rumbin this week­end.

This time around the event brings more than 300 lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional per­form­ers in­clud­ing ac­ro­bats, ma­gi­cians and ev­ery kind of mu­si­cian you can think of.

They’ve coloured this year’s event with a unique car­ni­vale flair as roam­ing dancers and daz­zling Brazil­ian acts de­light crowds.

Event di­rec­tor and founder Cindy Jensen wants ev­ery­one to know the di­ver­sity and tal­ent found in the busk­ing scene world­wide.

“Buskers by the Creek is about show­cas­ing the undis­cov­ered tal­ent

and pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity at a large-scale event for peo­ple just start­ing out in their ca­reer,” she said.

“With a to­tal of 16 stages, there could be folk on one stage and punk on an­other, so there is some­thing for ev­ery­one. We find peo­ple come to the event and don’t want to leave.

“At­ten­dees are asked to dig deep and tip the in­cred­i­ble en­ter­tain­ers through­out the amaz­ing, two-day ex­trav­a­ganza with acts be­ing paid solely through the loose change and gen­eros­ity of the crowds.”

Let the kids en­joy cir­cus acts and arts and crafts at the Karma Kids’ Zone while you ex­plore the rest of the park to see ev­ery­thing from con­tor­tion­ists to Brazil­ian dancers.

Dig around for that spare change and bring your friends for a day of un­lim­ited en­ter­tain­ment.
