Langley Street to close for buskers

The inaugural Victoria International Buskers Festival has official city approval to close Langley Street to traffic during festival hours, from about 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., July 15 to 24.

Without fear of passing cars, pedestrians will now be able to cross Langley from Bastion Square to get to one of five performance stages.

In addition to these main stage acts, “busk stops” featuring single performers will be set up throughout the downtown core.

The festival is a free-to-attend event however attending audiences will be encouraged to provide tips to busker hats following acts and routines.
