Found on the edge of Karlsplatz, Vienna: This poster, advertising a special event for buskers. Over 50 buskers, over 3 days. I’m sorry I missed this event, as I arrived on September 17th—it would have been fun to see how it went.
I think this is a first for me, to find buskers being actively celebrated , rather than just tolerated and perhaps humored. Around the world, we’ve all encountered buskers of many varieties—we stop and look and maybe give a few coins. The “statues”, the jugglers, the musicians etc. I’ve often wondered whether these people can make an adequate living like this with their “busking performances”, or whether they do it as a part-time thing on top of a regular job.
