Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Busk helps connect audiences and their favourite street performers:
– Find amazing street performers near you, in real time.
– Find out about the lives of these artists.
– Tip buskers with secure one-click cashless payments.
– “Fan” your favourites
– Connect to the worldwide busker community!
– And the app helps with our academic research (see below)
More info below on why you should want to use the app!
It’s a backstage pass to the street! Now you can see great street shows happening near you, and can keep up to date with your favourite performers. Also, you can one-click donate to share the love and keep street performance alive (for when you’re not carrying cash!)
People are carrying less cash than ever, so you’re going to need an alternative. Embrace the 21st Century! This app will help you gain fans, gain an audience And earn money. You can also see how much you’ve earned during previous shows.
NOTE: This app will depend on people using it! So, buskers of the world, that's up to you!
– Tell your audience!
– Say: “Find me on busk.co”
– Say: “Download the Busk App from the App Store”
– Make it a part of your hat speech.
– Print out a sign promoting it
– Get other buskers to download it too!
For BUSKER FESTIVALS
Encourage your artists to use the app, so your audience will get live updates of who is performing in each of your locations. It’s good for your artists because they can earn more money. It’s good for your audience because they can find out where to go, and get more info on the performers! Win win!
For BUSKING HOTSPOTS (i.e. Covent Garden, Pier 39 etc)
Our app is gathering data to support our research on the social and economic impact of busking. By promoting the use of our app, you’re helping us to collect better data at your pitch. You’ll be able to use that info to show your local council just how brilliant you are!
If you’re looking to encourage artistic communities, our app is collecting evidence to support your programs. But our app also inspires people to come to town to enjoy live art, and plan their trips to town around these street shows. Busking is the original placemaking!
