Busking permits

The shire supports activity in our public places by buskers, artists and street performers.

A busking permit in Mount Alexander Shire is free and they are valid for a specific timeframe and/or up to 12 months. After that time you will need to renew it.

  • You do not engage in busking at that location for more than 1 hour in a 24 hour period.
