Busker is an English word and describes someone who performs in a public place. The range of performances that can be encountered in the Bern Buskers Festival is correspondingly diverse. Music, dance, theatre, comedy, street performance, puppet theatre, art and artistry attract 70,000 visitors to Bern every year. The professionalism of the artistes who perform across the many small stages and the beautiful backdrop of the Old Town of Bern, which coincidentally is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, make the Buskers Bern Festival a unique event.
