RULES AND CONDITIONS TO TAKE PART TO THE FERRARA BUSKERS FESTIVAL 2020 
(22nd - 30th August 2020)

Please read carefully our rules in all their parts and conform to them.

Artists who participate at FBF (a non competitive event) are divided in two categories: invited artists and accredited/fringe artists.

INVITED ARTISTS (single artist or group):

  • They are hosted (accomodation and board) at our organization expenses and will receive a refund for their travel expenses.

  • Artists must perform during the entire period of the festival, unless different agreement with organizers.

  • Taking part as an invited artist is only possible after receiving the official invitation letter.

  • Every year the festival is dedicated to a guest city, for this reason part of the 20 invited groups must come from that city.

  • Invited groups are 20.

ACCREDITED/FRINGE ARTISTS (musicians and others kind of artists):

  • They can benefit of special accomodation and board agreements proposed by the organization.

  • According to the artists availability, organizers will decide which and how many days will be designated as accredited/fringe artist.

  • Taking part as an accredited/fringe artist is only possible after receiving the official accreditation letter.

  • Number of accredited artists will vary day by day according to the street spots availability.

No artist will receive a cachet or payment. Everyone can do a “hat collection”.
