World Buskers Festival 2018

Christchurch’s favourite summer entertainment festival roars back for another year in 2018 – its 25th anniversary. An army of street performers, comedians, fringe artists, musicians and visual artists from both NZ and abroad will crowd into the city for ten days of the festival’s regular high-energy bedazzlement.

Acts typically include acrobatics, hoola-hoops, trapeze, music, dance, vaudeville, burlesque, comedy and the just plain bizarre, all rolled into a jam-packed festival that usually has almost too-many must-sees to try and get to! Big acts this year include international sensation Tape Face with a brand new show, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Ginger Minj in her amazing solo musical comedy Crossdresser For Christ, the fabulous Topp Twins in a new show of songs and spoons, Jonny Woo and Le Gateau Chocolat bringing us hilarious hijinks in the ‘Les Misérmassacre’ cabaret of A Night At The Musicals, and much, much more besides.

Hit up the website  at for shceduling and announcements – early is good, as many events sell out extremely quickly!
