The countdown is on to the first Letterkenny Busking Festival that takes place around the town’s Main Street tomorrow (SAT).
Musicians and Street Entertainers from across the North West are putting their sets together to compete for the amazing €1000 in prize money.
Singers, dancers, musicians and street entertainers of all kinds are being asked to participate to create a fun day for all the family in Letterkenny.
“People always love a bit of music when they are out shopping and this summer we’ve been trying out events for the whole family. There has been lots going on and we’re delighted to bring the first busking Festival to Letterkenny,” explained Brian McCormick, President Letterkenny Chamber.
“We’re offering a prize of €1,000 to the lucky winner so we know we’ll have a high standard throughout the day. ShopLK is all about enjoying the best shopping experience. We want our customers to really enjoy what Letterkenny has to offer and this type of event makes people happy and creates a real buzz. This Festival will be the first of what we hope becomes an annual event.”
Since launching the festival on Facebook there has been a really high number of enquiries so everyone turning up to watch will see a fantastic range of acts from 1pm to 4.30pm.
The competition is open to buskers and street performers/entertainers of all disciplines. All performers who want to take part must register at the Courtyard Shopping Centre, Letterkenny between 9:30am – 11.30am on the day. They will be allocated a slot and will be required to perform from 1pm until 4.30pm at that pitch. The Acts will then be judged anonymously during the afternoon and the winner will be announced at 4.30pm.
