South Melbourne Market is one of the City of Port Phillip’s most popular destinations and provides a great opportunity for talented performers to entertain thousands of customers on Market days.

The Market has designated busking locations outside the Market on Cecil and Coventry Streets. Buskers can perform for up to one hour in each location. 

All buskers are required to hold a valid City of Port Phillip busking permit. If you do not hold a permit please apply via the link below.

Note: Busking is no longer permitted inside the South Melbourne Market.
