For the latest news from the Bandstand Busking team.

We’re back!

Hello!

Bandstand Busking is back after a long and lengthy winter (and spring) hibernation. It’s all change here; we’ve got a new website, new logo, new camera gear and a fresh and eager thirst to book in some new incredible busks.

To kick things off we spent some time this week with Dark Dark Dark in Hampstead Heath and Ra Ra Riot at the Southbank Center and filmed them performing a few songs.

Keep your eyes wide for the footage from that which will be online soon.

And keep your ears open for news of our future busks! We have exciting things in the works and can’t wait to share.
