Busking

Bring the market to life

Market Update: COVID-19

The Market will again allow buskers to perform onsite from 23 November 2020. Please note busking will be permitted in designated locations on the exterior of the Market only. Please visit the Market Office, call 03 9209 6295 or email enquiries to smm@portphillip.vic.gov.au.

The Market is not currently issuing new busking permits at this time. We thank you for your patience and understanding.


We are often on the lookout for new talent or ideas to ensure a visit to the Market is full of surprise, moments and wonder for all, whether it be a new mural, community engagement activity, live music, artwork or a roving performance.

If you’ve got some creative ideas or are interested in contributing to our Market, please submit an Expression of Interest here.
