International Festival of Street Art “Busker Bus” is one of the most colourful and joyful events in Poland. Musicians, clowns, circus actors, mimes, acrobats, fire-eaters, dancers, stilt walkers, poets, performers and other artists from Poland and abroad have taken part in it since 1997. The organizator of this event is Romuald Popłynek.

This year the daily performances of the artists will run in the evening in the appointed streets and squares that are signed by special number symbols of Buskerbus’s stops. Every artist will present his/her 45-60 minute programme two times a day – first time between 2-5 p.m., second time between 7-10 p.m. A lot of artits will take part in the night’s performances. Except Buskerbus’s stops there will be other places like An Archipelago of Poets where the artists can  recite their poems at the proverbial 2 metre cobbles selling at the same time their signed poems. They will also have to adapt this space and create some production design or prepare music as a part of their performance.

The next interesting places are Painters alley and Sculptors alley where working on the street artists can also present their works. During the daily performances the main place will be the bus of the Busker Bu’s from which announcements, comments connected with Festival’s events and the interviews with the artists will be presented. The bus will be the information centre and the office.

The time of festival: 25 to 27 June 2010

Place: Market Square

What is the most important thing in this event? You don’t have to buy any tickets and there are no rankings or competitions. This festival is a promotion of indepedent and free art.
