MUSIC: Feeling The Street – Celebrating The World’s Best Buskers

Around the world, every single day, some of the most vibrant musical performances take place on the world’s street corners. That talent now has a home with the launch of Feeling the Street (www.feelingthestreet.com), an online campaign that celebrates some of the world’s best buskers.

For the next nine weeks, street musicians will be able to enter clips of their own original performances to enter the competition. Visitors to the site can choose their favourite performers from the hundreds on offer and help to decide which six individuals they would like to see come together in a Global Street Band. 

Three phases of competition:  

Phase 1- Enter and Vote  

Musicians can enter by submitting an original video where they show their skills, playing an original song on their street corner. A global online audience will then vote by throwing money in the hats of the musicians they like most.  Phase 1 runs from March 18, 2015.

Phase 2 – “Pick your band”

The audience will be able to pick a combination of the six favorite artists they would most like to see come together.  Phase 2 runs from May until June, 2015.

Phase 3 – Taking the Global Street Band on the road

The winning participants will travel to New Zealand, for a nine-day tour across the country that will culminate in a live performance on stage.  Six audience winners will also be selected as ‘Roadies’ to travel with the band.  Phase 3 runs from June 13 until June 20, 2015.
