The most important international event based on music and street art in Italy.
The Ferrara Buskers Festival is the biggest event completely dedicated to street artists. Every year an audience of about 800,000 people comes from all over the world. The Festival is in fact a journey around the world, thanks to its performances that are a mix of exotic and familiar sounds, made with original instruments, eye-catching costumes and imaginative choreographies. The Buskers entertain and live up the audience with their performances, without getting any reward, even if a lot of them are really professional street artists. That’s why the crowd generosity is truly appreciated.
