Background

Galway is famous for its music and busking tradition, however in recent years concerns in respect to the management around street performing have been notified to the City Council.

The complaints mainly relate to loud, continuous and repetitive noise, obstruction of premises and thoroughfare, busking taking place late at night disturbing city residents and other related concerns.

With this in mind, Galway City Council are conducting a review into street performance and busking in the City and considering the possible introduction of a policy and/or bye-laws to regulate and encourage street performance in a manner consistent with the overall public interest, while at the same time acknowledging the importance of street performance to the vibrancy, culture and attraction of Galway City.

Public Consultation

For the purposes of the review and in advance of the drafting of any proposed policy or bye-laws, submissions are invited from the public, businesses and street performers with regard to busking and street performance in Galway City and issues that should be considered in the context of the review. Please consult the City Council website at www.galwaycity.ie to view a discussion document on this matter.
