Please note: The Australian National Busking Championships have been cancelled for 2020. They look forward to you joining them in November 2021. The Australian National Busking Championships (ANBC) are back for 2019. The streets of Cooma come alive with music as talented buskers rotate around the town performing for passers by. A variety of music is on offer with most genres covered and there are other street performing acts also on show. Seven regional busking competitions have been held across the country, with Cooma holding its own regional competition and the ANBC National Grand Final all on the same day. Top prizes are on offer for such categories as Primary and Secondary students, community music, best group, blues music, most innovative, to name a few. On the Friday evening before the day of busking a Welcome Party will be held and on Saturday evening after the event an After Party will be held, giving you the opportunity to experience more of the wonderful talent that is on offer.
