Modeled on the Championship in Cooma, NSW, The Albany Regional Final of the Australian National Busking Championships is set for Saturday, 7 April 2018.

It will also be an opportunity for musicians all over the country and for local performers to show Albany musicians to showcase their talents and for musicians from all over the country to be part of a WA first.

Organiser Ian Rayson says the Rotary initiative brings together a huge range of artists and genres, rotating at half-hour intervals before the evening's finals.

"In one day in Cooma… there were 70 busking groups of 170-180 musicians and they played around 30 venues in the town," he said.

He says he hopes the event will be as popular as Blues at Bridgetown.

"Hopefully as big if not bigger… Busking is all sorts of genres and acts and things like that so hopefully it’s got a much more eclectic crowd and attracts more people, and attracts people from within the region as well as outside."
