BREAD & CIRCUS – BACKYARD BUSKERS FESTIVAL

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Can you believe it? On the day we announce that we’ll be back in 2021, Coronavirus restrictions are back in place across New Zealand. 

 

Of course, the festival team are constantly monitoring government health and safety guidelines regarding COVID-19. The safety of our audience, staff and artists are our top priority and we will keep you updated. 

 

2021 Festival Update 

 

We’re planning for The Buskers Festival to return in January with a special home-grown edition in the heart of Ōtautahi Christchurch. The 2021 festival will feature the best hand-picked local artistic talent, celebrating the rich, dynamic and diverse creative culture that thrives across New Zealand.

 

With a focus that’s firmly local, 2021 will bring a backyard celebration to remember! 

 

As always, it’ll be a family affair, with tonnes of busking, a spotlight on local provedores, iconic Christchurch venues, and free outdoor entertainment for the whole family.   

 

The festival program will be announced in November 2020.
