This musical busking workshop at the 2019 Woodstock Show provides a safe space
for young people (under 18yo) to practice playing their music to a friendly family-focused audience in an outdoor setting.
- Venue: Woodstock Showground, West Robinson Loftus and, South St, Woodstock NSW 2793.
- Date and Times: Father's Day: 1 September 2019, 9am-2pm
- Busking Location: Shed located between the Pavillion, and the Wool block, and in front of the toilet block.
Purpose: Aim at busking on your own beyond the workshop: develop confidence to play your music in public,
learn your responsibilities as a busker, learn what to pack, learn what is important to you,
and how to manage your area, and the audience... whilst enjoying your music.
Your responsibility as a player:
- Bring your musical instrument and music, appropriate clothing, water and food, and a will to learn and share
- Give yourself enough time to setup and start on time for your chosen timeslot
- Use the supplied equipment respectfully eg microphone, amplifier, music stand, keyboard
- Respect the other workshop participants
- Provide a gold coin to the organiser to support the busking workshops if and only if it was gained whilst busking at the workshop. No earning, no support fee.
NOT our responsibility:
- Organise the legal use of the public space
- Provide the resources to support the player such as microphone, amplifier, music stand, keyboard
- Refund the reservation fee in the player donation box at start of play.
Note that the reservation fee will not be refunded if the player does not come to play at the confirmed timeslot.
- Ensure the player whilst playing is safe
- Facilitate the learning of each player seeking feedback
- the well-being of players registered for the workshop but awaiting playing is not our responsibility.
It is expected that the well-being of players awaiting playing falls under the responsibility
of their parent or accompanying adult.
