Lancelin Festival brings buskers from all over the state
Many well-known artists started out busking their way to a break in the music industry Ed Sheeran, Tracy Chapman and Australian's Tash Sultana, Dean Ray, Kim Churchill and the Pierce Brothers. Busking is the activity of playing music in the street for voluntary donations, however, it is an excellent way to get your music out to the public and be appreciated.

A grand prize of $1,000 is up for grabs with judges visiting venues in different locations over the two-day programme, where buskers will be performing in rotation. Both days events commence at 9.00am and conclude at 3.00pm. From 4.00pm on Sunday, all buskers are invited to celebrate and perform in an Open Jam Session at the Lancelin Beach Hotel where the prize presentation and the People's Choice Award is given. All entries for this event close on 13th September 2020.

Lancelin is a small fishing and tourist town approximately 127 kilometres north of Perth and within a few kilometres from the start of the Indian Ocean Drive. The name of the town originates from the nearby island, Lancelin Island, which was named after P J Lancelin and is fondly known for a holiday destination.
