Buskers of all ages and talents are invited to participate on the streets of Mitchelstown.
The Mitchelstown Busking Festival creates a festival vibe on the streets of Mitchelstown alongside the Independence Festival.
Filling the streets with music, it keeps both locals and visitors entertained. The competition is open to all ages and musical levels.
This year, enjoy the open mic session, which encourages younger players to showcase their talents by performing up to two songs each.
The festival, now in its third year, has proven to be a massive success both for visitors to Mitchelstown and to the local economy. It will take place outside certain businesses on the main road, on a scheduled timetable, with a 30-minute performance time for each. The competition will be decided by a panel of four judges, all of whom boast musical backgrounds. The overall winner will have the chance to perform at the Independence Festival the following year.
This festival has boosted the atmosphere in town, and is open to all.
