BUSKERS by the score will be on the streets of Rosebud this Saturday.

Musicians and other entertainers have been invited onto the streets and outside Rosebud Plaza for the annual Buskfest.

Spots were limited to 35, but organisers say more than double that number applied for Saturday’s gig, perhaps attracted by the $1000 cash prize.

The competition includes performances by solo vocalists, duos, bands, pianists, harpist, African drummers, dancers, jugglers, comedians and quick draw artists.

The shows starts at 10am and ends at 1pm. A panel of judges will be out and about among the audiences to see who takes home the money.
