All buskers, performers, spruikers and pavement artists working in a Council space need to have a busking permit. 

Busking permits ensure that there are no venue booking clashes and busking is only allowed at Britannia Mall, Mitcham and some areas in the Box Hill Mall, Box Hill.

If you wish to perform on private land you will need to seek permission from the owner of that land and a Council permit is not needed.

Permit Conditions

The permit conditions are listed on the Busking Permit Application Form ( DOCX 120.68KB).

Applying for a Permit

To busk in a Council space, applicants must complete a Busking Permit Application Form ( DOCX 120.68KB) and submit it, with the specified payment amount, accompanying documentation and media to Council for consideration. Busking permit applications must be made at least 10 working days prior to the date you want to start.

If your application is unsuccessful, your application fee will be refunded in full.
