From Friday 19 – Monday 22 April 2019, Surfers Paradise will once again transform into a carnival of laughter and entertainment with the return of the Australian Street Entertainment Championships. See both invited and competing performers take to stages across Surfers Paradise, all vying for the crowd’s attention over the Easter long weekend.
Watch as some of Australia’s most amazing buskers make Surfers Paradise come ALIVE with sword swallowing, juggling knives, BMX stunts and so much more!
A selection of hopeful buskers will battle it out over four days to prove they can hold their ground and compete for the ultimate title of Australian Street Entertainment Champion. Our competing performers will be looking to impress as they are evaluated by a panel of judges. They will be assessed on their creativity, originality and WOW factor! The performer who brings the most awe and amazement to festival goers will win a cash prize and the highly acclaimed title.
You can see the very best professional street entertainers reinvent and integrate snippets of their acts at the end of each day in the Marquee pitch on Surfers Paradise Beach. Entry is free, exit is by donation in the hat.
