International and local buskers are headed for the V&A Waterfront as the third Cape Town Buskers Festival gets under way. The Buskers Festival will have a programme of free-to-enter performances on five stages at the V&A Waterfront. Audiences pay for what they like, and can do so by putting money into the performers’ hats, a tradition called ‘hatting’. Cape Town Buskers Festival CEO Tony Lankester says, ‘In many respects busking is the original crowdfunding. It’s also one of the oldest forms of theatre but, in South Africa, it’s not always accorded the same respect as other performance arts. We will be bringing out some international acts to add variety to the programme but our local street performers will certainly dominate and will hold their own with the crowds.’
