Chapéus na Rua – Lisbon Busking Festival

The concept behind the festival is closely related to the practice of busking or performing in public places where attendance is free. It aims to reach out to the community by offering a series of shows that may take the form of improvised poetry, living statues, juggling, acrobatics, clowns, puppetry, mime, dance, theatre, performance art and music, open to all audiences, regardless of their social status, culture, age or gender.
