Dance, laugh and vibrate! For three days, artists and musicians from all over the world bring a touch of color to the alleys of Bern's city center.

The Buskers Festival has been taking place all over the world for over 30 years. Outdoors in the midst of their cities, visitors are treated to a variety of cultural performances. The street artists entertain their audiences with music, dance, comedy, puppet theatre, art and so much more. Hopping from one stage to the next, they conquer all the small venues spread across the festival grounds.

The first Buskers Bern Street Music Festival was held in 2004. Since then, every year, the Old Town of Bern hosts over 150 performing artists and attract more than 70,000 fans to the festival every year.  Visitors award the street performers with their well-deserved fee right on the spot by throwing money into their hats.
