We want to hear your talent!

Casino Beef Week Country IT Busking Competition

Musicians, singers, artists and buskers take note: Casino Beef Week wants to see and hear your talent!

Whether it is country, folk, hip hop or pop that you specialise in, we encourage performers in the Northern Rivers to sign up for the Country IT Busking Competition taking place during Beef Week this year. The competition will be held in the Casino CBD from May 21 to 25, 2018.

Beef Week President Stuart George said he is calling on people from across the region to join in the fun.

“The Country IT Busking Competition will show how many talented performers we have in our town and across the Northern Rivers region,” Mr George said.

“The competition is the perfect platform for artists to showcase their talents to the thousands of visitors during the NCMC Casino Beef Week and perhaps walk away with some great prize money,” he said.

What’s up for grabs at the Country IT Busking Competition?

There are great prizes available at the 2018 Country IT Busking Competition including a stage performance for the best 3 performers on Friday 25 May in Walker St at the famous Richmond Dairies FREE Breakfast with the Butchers, where over 3,000 people head to town. In addition, $1,000 in prize money are up for grabs: 1st $ 750, 2nd $150, 3rd $50, People’s Choice $50. The busking competition is proudly sponsored by Country IT.

Country IT Co-Owner Michael Greentree enjoyed last year’s fourth run of the busking competition so much that he wanted to support it to welcome more buskers in town during Beef Week. He hopes to see the competition grow to be bigger and better each year.

“The busking competition creates an electric atmosphere throughout the streets of the Casino CBD that is not often felt, and that excites people. It’s inspiring to see local performers from all backgrounds and abilities given an opportunity to showcase their talents in our town during the NCMC Casino Beef Week Festival,” he said
