Street Performance World Championship

Here’s an event that everyone should take note of – the extravagant AIB Street Performance World Championship! It runs from Friday 13 June to Sunday 15 June, at Merrion Square, and what’s really nice is – it’s FREE :D

This is the third year that this event is taking place, and it’s gaining much popularity given the fun factors from the different acts. This year, 12 very professional street acts will be competing to be the champion over the three days. Each act has time slot of an hour, either starting on the hour or on the half hour, at the multiple tents/areas set up. On Saturday and Sunday, each act will be performing 3 times per day too!

A little heads up – there are two special Bravosho (over 16s only) at the Dublin Castle, on Friday and Saturday evening, and the doors open at 6pm. During the Bravosho, ALL 12 acts will be performing on one stage, so it’s a one-stop shop for the championship. Again, there will not be any cover charge but seats are limited. Expect some crazy queue and possible turning away if you’re not there sufficiently early.

Of course, in the spirit of street performance, bring some decent amount of change with you to tip the performers. You’re buying a wonderful experience, tipped to the amount that you feel the show deserves and/or what you can afford. The atmosphere will definitely be brilliant (I loved it when I was there two years ago, during the first SPWC) and the performances highly entertaining.

See you there? ;-)
