If you're a music fan, or simply love to be entertained, then we have a selection of more than 300 performers for you to choose from this year.

From award-winning performers to talented teens; from swing to sword swallowing; from banjo to energy shows - there is literally a mixed bag of sweet sounds and fabulous entertainment to enjoy.




Attracting record crowds last year with Australia's first ever floating half-pipe, a 285-strong roll call of award-winning musicians, world-renowned entertainers and stunts galore, our family-friendly festival firmly reinforced itself as a world-leading busking festival.

"Buskers by the Creek is one of the most exciting and freshest events in the Australian music calendar. It was a real eye opener for me and could very well be the launching pad for the next Australian superstar act," said 12 times Golden Guitar-winner, Adam Brand.

'Buskers by the Creek' is FREE ENTRY and this year will see even more incredible entertainment from award-winning performers, talented teens, jaw-dropping tricks, daring world record attempts and more waterborne magic.

Audiences will also be captivated by the raw sounds of 2017 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Champions and also 'discover the undiscovered' with a colourful collection of emerging singer/songwriters thrown into the mix.

An eclectic group of performance artists will be painting and creating their masterpieces and an international menu to please all foodies will also be on offer, with well-known local restaurants dishing up with festival flair.

Karma Kids will have the young ones covered, offering a vast variety of workshops, crafts, circus, music and loads more!  Due to popular demand, a child minding service will also be available.  For further information and bookings, contact Skye on 0407 400 518.

'Battle of the Buskers' officially kicks off the festival at Currumbin Pub on Friday 13th October.  Our top festival singer-songwriters will take centre stage to battle it out for the 'Totally Talented' title.   Finalists to be announced shortly.  An 18+ event with a 7pm kick-off!

Pen the 13th, 14th and 15th October in your diaries so you don't miss out on another weekend of MYSTIQUE, MAGIC AND MARVEL!

NB:  All performer hats and suitcases will be out, so don’t forget to BYO spare change!  We'll also have our 'Pick your Busker' money for sale, with each token worth $1.  They'll be for sale from our info tent and when given, your favourite acts will redeem for cash. All generous gratuities given to the acts will be received with thanks and the purchase of merchandise will also support our talent on their road to success.
