Festival Spotlight: International Busking Day 2022 – Wembley, London

Wembley Park, a great hub of entertainment in London, is home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra HQ, The OVO Arena Wembley, and of course the famous Wembley Stadium. But this area is ambitious, and is continuously developing with fascinating cultural events, notably the recent installation of the Figures of Change Art Trail.

Another amazing event that the emerging area will host this year is the 7th International Busking Day, which places local grassroots artists alongside some more established artists, making for a great day of entertainment for all attendees.

Many people think of buskers as teenagers sitting on the street with a guitar, and whilst many great artists started out this way (Ed Sheeran, for example), the term ‘busker’ covers far more than singer-songwriters.

Josh McNorton, Cultural Director of Wembley Park, says: “Wembley has a rich heritage of hosting performances across many art forms, and busking is an incredible platform to launch the legendary acts of the future. Alongside musicians, International Busking Day will feature a range of street performers. Circus acts, dance troupes, graffiti artists, and more will be popping up around Wembley Park, entertaining everyone throughout the day.”

The festival will be free entry, so get down to Wembley Park on Saturday 16th July 2022 to see over 120 talented performers across 10 stages around the exciting area of Wembley Park, including folk singer-songwriter Seth Lakeman, as well as Swedish street magician Charlie Caper.
