Cappuccino Is this acceptable when busking? (42) RE: BS: Is this acceptable when busking? 26 Sep 02


I came across a bizarre piece of busking behaviour a few years back, at some Scottish folk festival, in a relatively small town. The organisers were hacked off to find that the act they had booked that night were busking for money in the town square during the daytime, and playing the same music... not promoting the evening show, but the entire set, to make extra money.

The organiser pointed out that as the small town's population had been allowed to hear their show for free, nobody would pay to come to the evening show.

I think he had a point.
