The Australian National Busking Championships (ANBC) is now in it's fourth year. The event is held in the picturesque town of Cooma, gateway to the Snowy Mountains in Southern NSW.
The ANBC is a different sort of music festival for Australia. The ANBC is a celebration of all styles of music because the Buskers who perform bring a huge variety of music to the event.
Pre-registered Buskers are assigned special locations (Busking Hot Spots) at various times around the Central Business District of Cooma. Judges roaming throughout the day select a number of Buskers to perform at the finals concert held in Centennial Park later that afternoon.
Battle rounds are held and the judges and audience make their final decision on the winners.
