Australian Street Entertainment Championships 2017

From Friday 14th- Monday 17th April, Surfers Paradise will once again transform into a carnival of laughter and entertainment with the return of the Australian Street Entertainment Championships presented by Cavill Lane. See both invited and competing performers take to stages across Surfers Paradise, all vying for the crowd's attention over the Easter long weekend.

Invited Performers

Watch as seven of Australia's most amazing buskers make Surfers Paradise come ALIVE this Easter with sword swallowing, juggling knives, BMX stunts and so much more! Don't miss our feature act, Globe of Death - as they perform bike stunts traveling up to 80km/hr within the metal globe (which is over four metres in height)!

Competing Performers

A selection of hopeful buskers will battle it out over four days to prove they can hold their ground and compete for the ultimate title of 2017 Australian Street Entertainment Champion. Our competing performers will be looking to impress as they are evaluated by a panel of judges on their creativity, originality and WOW factor! The performer who brings the most awe and amazement to festival goers will win a cash prize and the highly acclaimed title.

Evening Extravaganza

You can see the very best professional street entertainers reinvent and integrate snippets of their acts to craft a spectacular new improvisation show, all live, right before your eyes every single day of the event in the Marquee pitch on the Surfers Paradise Beach. Entry is free, exit is by donation in the hat.
