Buskers by the Lake 2022 | Buskers by the Lake


AUSTRALIA’S ORIGINAL,
MULTI–AWARD WINNING
BUSKING FESTIVAL

19 - 21 August 2022
Sunshine Coast

Step into this year’s ‘FANTASYLAND’ and experience mystique, magic and marvel!

We're coming back bolder and more daring in 2022, with a program that features six side show events and a two day lakeside extravaganza! Boasting a wildly diverse line-up with over 250 performers, we're also sporting a fresh new date in late winter!

As a line-up teaser, Tasmania's stretchy and freaky sweet-heart of sideshow, Samora Squid will thrill with his unique blend of contortion, sword-swallowing and punk singing. You'll also witness a show of circles, with multi-award winning circus performer, Hannah Cryle contorting herself through rings and due to popular demand Australia's most prolific sideshow performer, The Space Cowboy will be performing his death defying show featuring sword swallowing, chainsaw juggling and unicycle knife throwing. Internationally acclaimed break dance crew, Floorlegendz will be touching down from Sydney to show off their edgy power moves and Gold Coast artist, Anthony Pieters will mesmerise with his combined music, dance and art performances. Our floating half-pipe will also be set alight with an Energy Entertainments fire finale at sunset. And that's just the beginning...

Add a festival side show or three and catch our top singer-songwriters as they go head to head at Battle of the Buskers, ride the voodoo train with our festival freaks at Deja Voodoo - Resurrection and keep the party going into the night at a Sundowner Celebration.

We are BOLD! We are DARING! We are SPONTANEOUS!
