With your help, the Pimp My Busk team will be highlighting the many talented buskers around Brighton this coming Brighton Festival.

The show must go on!

Please help the Pimp My Busk team bring a sprinkle of razzamatazz, a dash of glamour & a pinch of pazazz to buskers around the streets of Brighton this coming Festival.

 

Brighton has an incredibly diverse music scene and there are so many buskers who brave the outdoors, come rain or shine, to share the songs that they write with the public.  With this in mind, this coming Brighton Festival, the Pimp My Busk crew aim to help get these brilliant musicians noticed and draw as much attention to them as we can (without stealing the limelight!).

How: 

The Pimp My Busk crew will be scouting the Laines of Brighton and identifying buskers who may be in need of a bit of additional pizzaz to draw attention to their act.  Quickly entering from the wings, the team will silently surround the performers, for a song or, at most, two, with the stage set of any performers dreams.  Then, as quickly as they arrived, the team will leave again but now there will be an even larger audience enjoying the music, who been drawn in by all the bright lights and fanfare.  

How can you help?

Pimp My Busk are looking to create a lightweight, easily assembled set and props with which the team can frame the buskers performance space. The team are all contributing their time and skills for free but need to raise the money to cover the materials for the set build, as well as the runnings costs, advertising etc.  In this way, every penny will help and will go towards highlighting the brilliant musicians performing on the streets during the festival.  Any money raised over target will be passed on to buskers on the day.
