About Berlin Street Music

Berlin Street Music is an advocacy group set up in order to fight to keep street art, in particular music, alive in Berlin. We aim to bring together the musicians, the public, authority figures, policy makers, advocates, businesses, lobby groups, and anyone else involved in creating a thriving, culturally rich, and economically sustainable street art scene. We hope to develop a community by bringing people together through numerous events, concerts, social projects, and other initiatives.

We as a group see there is a need for street musicians and other performers to be fairly represented. We believe that presenting our collective point of view with a united and organized front is paramount in achieving recognition legally, socially, and economically within the political and economic system, and to allow policy makers to see that street music, in Berlin especially, is incredibly important in both the history and development of the city.


Our goals are to

  • help buskers navigate the confusing laws of Berlin and change them

  • bring the Berlin community together with music

  • create a sustainable busking culture which is self sustained and not in need of any authoritarian intervention

  • organize meetings so buskers can connect outside of the spots to create community

  • develop relationships with select venues with whom we can create regular performance opportunities, especially in Winter

  • create networking opportunities in order for artists to meet industry professionals

  • create regular events and fundraisers and develop our own social identity

  • regularly update our database of busking resources
