The Australian National Busking Championships™ is an Australia-wide network of busking festivals.
The ANBC celebrates the rich diversity of Australian Music & Street Performance Culture. It was first held in Cooma in 2012, and is now held in 9 locations around the country, culminating in the national finals in Cooma each year where the winner of the grand final is given the title of Australian National Busking Champion along with substantial prize monies.
In previous years, the finals were held on the same day after the Cooma regional event, however in 2022 we have decided to separate the two events. With so many regional competitions producing finalists for the national competition, the national final has grown so much that a seperate event was needed and will be held on 26th November 2022 in Cooma. The winners of each regional competition will be invited to compete for the title of Australian National Busking Champion.
