Busking in Brisbane

The inner-city streets of Brisbane are filled with unique and entertaining buskers. You can busk wherever you like in Brisbane, except in the Queen Street Mall and South Bank. 

If you would like to busk in the Queen Street Mall you must first gain a busking licence. Busking licences are only granted after a formal audition process through Brisbane City Council. For information on audition times and to apply, please visit the Brisbane City Council website.

If you would like to busk at South Bank you must apply and receive a busking permit, please visit the Busking at South Bank page for more details.
