BUSKER/STREET PERFORMER APPLICATION Buskers and street performers are the artists of street theatre. Musicians playing in the open air, tap dancers hoofing on a sidewalk, a silver-clad living statue, jugglers, mimes, street magicians; these are just some of the characters that come to life when one thinks of 'buskers'. There is something uniquely beautiful about an artist creating temporary art on the pavement, knowing it will be washed away or trampled after they are finished. If you are a busker or street performer, we would like to introduce you to our receptive audience. Please read through the rules below, and apply if you think you would be a good fit for the festival. Busker/Street Performer Rules and Policies Buskers/street performers must apply, be approved, and coordinate their performance with the Deep Ellum Arts Festival.
