Some of the best local performers are gearing up to battle it out in the ultimate showdown when Bunjil Place hosts its first busking festival this weekend.
The FREE Busk A Move Festival will take over the Bunjil Place Plaza on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October, and the Casey community is encouraged to come along and join in the fun.
More than 25 acts will take to the stage across the weekend, competing to be crowned the Busk-Master and share in some of the great prizes on offer.
Along with the opportunity to watch the performers in action and drop some coins for your favourite acts, there will also be face painting, rides and tasty food trucks to make it a great day out. City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett encouraged residents to head along with family and friends for a fun day out.
“Busk A Move will showcase some of the best emerging talent, with a great line up of performers locked in - from solo acoustic musicians, rap artists and bands to magicians and dance acts,” Cr Ablett said.
“Bunjil Place is approaching its first birthday at the end this month. This is the first busking festival we’ve hosted at our amazing new arts and cultural precinct as we continue to offer great events that the whole family can enjoy.
“With spring now upon us, it’s the perfect opportunity to kick back and soak up the sunshine in the Bunjil Place Plaza whilst watching some of the best local talent in action as they compete to take out the title of Casey’s best busker.”
Busk A Move will run from 12.00 pm to 8.00 pm on both Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October.
