Event Details

Everyone’s got a little bit of country music in their soul. Kiwis `give it a go’ nature and love of music is what Freeze Ya Bits Off Busking is all about.

Buskers take to the streets to perform from their favourite genre, lured by two $1300 prizes and a total prize pool of more than $5000.

Strolling the streets to soak up the buskers’ home-grown talents is as entertaining as entering the competition yourself, or with friends, to sing or play a country song or two.

The event kicks off with a schools' busking competition on Thursday, before buskers of any age strut their stuff in the town centre on Friday and Saturday.

Some real talent emerges and the top 10 acts perform at a finals event where prize winners are announced.

When and where:

SCHOOLS AUDITIONS on Irk Street and Main Street, Gore between noon - 1.00pm Thursday 3 June

OPEN CATEGORY AUDITIONS on Irk Street and Main Street, Gore between 11.00am - 1.00pm Friday 4 June & Saturday 5 June

FINALS at The Thomas Green, Medway Street, Gore 2.30pm-4.30pm Saturday 5 June

This is a community run event and free to all to attend and support the buskers
