FESTIVAL EVENT – Edinburgh Big Beach Busk, Saturday 27th August 2016

Emma Milligan sings at the Portobello Big Beach Busk 2015 from Edinburgh Spotlight.

Back for its seventh year, the Edinburgh Big Beach Busk will take place from 12 noon on Saturday 27th August. Edinburgh’s Portobello seaside gets mixed up and musical for a day. People of all ages are encouraged to head along and entertain the public on the promenade.

The Edinburgh Big beach Busk say:

“No rules. Just Busking. You can be any kind of street entertainer you like from a one man band to an orchestra, a mime/robot, a choir, balloon modeller or magician. We’ve had brass bands and tenko drummers alongside salsa bands and some amazing singer songwriters.”

So basically, anything goes.

No need to book a place or buy tickets, just turn up and have fun!
